Get Licensing signoff on using newer React
.js versions after 0 .12 .0 due to changed license
In bug 1033784 we got approval for using react.js version 0.10.0 with a Apache license, and landed it in bug 1033841. When react released 0.12.0, Facebook changed the license it was released with to BSD (from apache): http://facebook.github.io/react/blog/2014/10/28/react-v0.12.html#license-change---bsd Unfortunately, in landing the upgrade in bug 1096399 we totally missed spotting the license change and getting re-approval. This landed for Fx37. Therefore we're post-requesting approval. I suspect we may need an about:license update as well. NI to gerv to take a look at this. https://github.com/facebook/react https://github.com/facebook/react/blob/master/LICENSE https://github.com/facebook/react/blob/master/PATENTS http://facebook.github.io/react/
If possible, I'd like to have this finished this week. We have been blocked on this for other work.
Yes, this license is fine. If we ship React in Firefox / Fennec, we need to add the React BSD license (not the patent stuff) to about:license in the normal way. Gerv
Great, thanks gerv! Mark do you know how to add a license to about:license?
(In reply to James Long (:jlongster) from comment #3) > Great, thanks gerv! Mark do you know how to add a license to about:license? James: it's very straightforward, and just involves making a change to toolkit/content/license.html. See the patch in bug 1176280 if you want to have a run at it.
(That patch is an example where I'm a different license).
I've just filed bug 1190440 for the license addition. Marking this as fixed as we have approval per comment 2.
