  • Rewrite regex part
  • get new odma.h file with suitable license
  • get new os2bitmap.cxx file with suitable license
  • get new ksc5601.h file from XFree86

Classification of OOo source code

List of files where it seems that the copyright owner is not Oracle, but the license probably is compatible with the ASL

List of files where it seems that the copyright owner is not Oracle, but the license probably is not compatible with the ASL

All other files in the OOo code repository should have an Oracle Copyright and can be part of the software grant

Unclear files

Here a list of files that need more investigation to decide in which of the three categories they belong:


Should be unpacked and committed or removed.


Binary file committed to the repository; I doubt that we want to have that in the Apache repo. As it is only test code, we can check that later. Would be nice to know what this is nevertheless. There is a java file with the same name in this folder.

dtrans/source/os2/clipb/OS2Bitmap.cxx (solved)

*  This code is property of Serenity Systems Intl
*  All rights reserverd.

This file can not be moved to Apache, perhaps Yuri Dario will provide a new file with better license.

More binary files in our code



I doubt that we want to have them in the repository, or ... ?

A header from GNU c library (solved)


This file has been released by a permissive license (MIT style) by the FSF:

see http://cvsweb.xfree86.org/cvsweb/xc/lib/X11/lcUniConv/#dirlist

twain header



The TWAIN License The TWAIN Working Group grants customer ("Customer") the worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to reproduce and distribute the software and documentation of the TWAIN toolkit ("TWAIN Toolkit"). The TWAIN Toolkit was designed to be used by third parties to assist them in becoming compliant with the TWAIN standard, but it has not been developed to the standards of a commercial product. Consequently, the TWAIN toolkit is provided AS IS without any warranty. THE TWAIN Working Group disclaims all warranties in the TWAIN toolkit whether implied, express or statutory, including, without limitation, the implied warranties of merchantability, noninfringement of third party rights and fitness for a particular purpose. The TWAIN Working Group disclaims all liability for damages, whether direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential, arising from the reproduction, distribution, modification, or other use of the TWAIN Toolkit. As a condition of this license, Customer agrees to include in software programs based in whole or in part on the TWAIN Toolkit the following providions in (i) the header or similar file in such software and (ii) prominently in its documentation and to require its sublicensees to include these provisions in similar locations: The TWAIN Toolkit is distributed as is. The developer and distributors of the TWAIN Toolkit expressly disclaim all implied, express or statutory warranties including, without limitation, the implied warranties of merchantability, noninfringement of third party rights and fitness for a particular purpose. Neither the developers nor the distributors will be liable for damages, whether direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential, as a result of the reproduction, modification, distribution or other use of the TWAIN Toolkit.

ODMA (solved)


This file will not be moved to Apache. As we don't build the odma content provider regularly, we can add a new file with better license later.

MPL headers


It's only a header - I assume that because we can't use nss anyway this header file is obsolete also.

Regexp (solved)



A complete mess, IMHO. We have to reimplement this functionality. This is only used in a single place in the OOo source: http://svn.services.openoffice.org/opengrok/xref/Current%20%28trunk%29/i18npool/source/search/textsearch.cxx






No license information provided. http://www.unixodbc.org/ states that it is GPL+LGPL, but that comprises a whole package; no idea where the header are from.
