Overview Data-focused editing for legacy design elements Good for when you dont have Designer handy… or just dont want to fire up your Windows VM In the initial betas, focused on forms, views, folders, and stylesheets Also happened to be a good experiment in single-XPage, many-CC appdesign and use of Dojo UI
Future Direction Fewer bugs! Additional design elements (image resources, etc.)XPages are trouble Most importantly: org.openntf.domino.design API
Intellectual Property Policy Peter Tanner Currently working with IBM as a consultant on contract and IP issues, andas IP Manager for OpenNTF. Developed full set of governance and IP documents and policies for OpenHealth Tools and OpenNTF. Spent 13 years with OTI and IBM handling business development forembedded Java, establishment of Eclipse, international businessrelationships and participation in government R&D programs; Worked five years in Canadian government (Foreign Affairs and IndustryCanada) promoting technology exports to Europe and Asia; Spent 13 years in computer graphics R&D at the National Research Councilof Canada and the University of Waterloo.
IP Goals Rigourous – but flexible. To be taken seriously, OpenNTF needs to be closer to Eclipse and Apacherather than SourceForge. Companies trust software that comes from Apache and Eclipse On SourceForge, anything goes. However, there are members of the Community who want to be able touse GPL license: To prevent others from making commercial products Or since they want to use GPL-licensed components Some contributors didnt want to submit to rigourous process And we have Legacy Code Solution was to clearly identify code that met Eclipse/Apache-like IP rules.
IP Policy All contributors must be covered by ICLA or CCLA – no exceptions! All contributions must be under Apache or one of GPL3 family of licenses Rare exceptions if use of these licenses not possible Contributions start out as “Not Cleared” Some companies will not touch “Not Cleared projects. Github is working repository – projects cleared on “release” to OpenNTFsite. We create “Teams” on Github with write access to their projects
Clearance Scan using using a keyword search tool All 3rdparty software must be listed in Notice file All licenses must be compatible All licenses must be open source All source code must be included or available JSON.org (not an open source license) Committer checks for documentation and whether code runs We will only take down code if: Receive take down request from the DCMA process Notice that project is using proprietary code without permission Source code is not included Requres proprietary product that is not freely available
Problems detected by clearance process Missing or incomplete License and Notice files Incompatible licenses GPL in Apache project Some Creative Commons licenses GPL2 and GPL3 (go figure) Use of unlicensed Blog postings Why cant bloggers simply add “all code is licensed under Apache 2.0” to their footer Inclusion of internal URLs Inclusion of personal information Missing source Requirement for proprietary code
Current Status Nearly all projects are under the Apache license Most submissions have no issues We are improving our reputation for safe code Also – feel free to contact me with any questions about your submissions.
