[epf-dev] Clarity on EPL

hiho,

 

I am trying to understand the Eclipse Public License, but I am having trouble translating its meaning to the real-world circumstances of the usage, modification, and cannibalism possibilities for OpenUP.

 

We have a customer who would get great value from organizing their process assets from a SPEM perspective, managing and publishing them with EPF Composer, and utilizing the process content from OpenUP.  But they are already down the path of doing an informally structured website full or process content.  If I propose OpenUP/Basic, there is a good chance they’ll say “can I just grab <this chunk> and <this chunk>?”

 

So is it legal in the Eclipse Public License for an organization to just copy some guidelines and cut-and-paste some other snippets into their process repository that is not using EPF Composer and then go on about their business?
