Part 2 -
Just wanted to provide a heads up that, in collaboration with legal counsel for the Fedora Community and Red Hat, we have made a minor tweak to the Yahoo! Public License (YPL), Version 1.0.
The old termination language of section 6.2 YPL 1.0 reads:
In the event Yahoo! determines that You have breached this Agreement, Yahoo! may terminate this Agreement.
The new version of 6.2, which has now been enshrined in YPL 1.1, is:
In the event You violate the terms of this Agreement, Yahoo! may terminate this Agreement.
That was the sole change between YPL 1.0 and YPL 1.1.
Our colleagues in the Fedora community were concerned that the old version of 6.2 did not give licensees enough certainty that they could keep exercising their license, even if they followed its requirements. We thought this change was a reasonable request, and we were very pleased that we were able to respond to the Fedora community in the way they asked. We want to make the benefit of this change available to everyone in the Zimbra community, to minimize any confusion about whether it's better touse the version provided by Zimbra directly or via the Fedora distribution. So, all Zimbra community members that have already downloaded Open Source Edition of ZCS under YPL 1.0 are free to choose to use the Open Source Edition under YPL 1.1 instead of YPL 1.0. In fact, we encourage you to do so. Future downloads of ZCS version 5.0.7 and beyond will be under the terms of YPL 1.1. Many thanks to our Fedora friends for their input. We welcome your feedback as well!
