clintropolis opened a new issue #8300: determine if licensing for wikipedia 
sample data allows us to distribute it
URL: https://github.com/apache/incubator-druid/issues/8300
 
 
   We need to determine the licensing details of the wikipedia sample data 
which we utilize for the quickstart tutorials and a handful of tests. Depending 
on the outcome of this we will either need to adjust `LICENSE` and/or `NOTICE` 
files, or in the worst case, replace it with something else. See [0.15.1 IPMC 
vote 
thread](https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/f97a3743e441747552f54dd61148366d808883e33d55cab0d5161770@%3Cgeneral.incubator.apache.org%3E)
 for the discussion that instigated this issue.
   
   It was collected in 2015 from an IRC channel which was effectively an API of 
sorts for the wikipedia 'edit stream' before it had its current HTTP based API, 
and is referenced in the docs for the current API here 
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Recent_changes_stream. 
   
   Since this is metadata about wikipedia content I would naively suspect it 
would fall under the wikipedia licensing terms for text contributions which is 
Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike, 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Reusing_Wikipedia_content, which _i 
think_ falls under [category 
b](https://apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-b) if true which as I 
understand means binary only distribution but might be a bit of a grey area 
based on how we are using it strictly for documentation and testing? I _think_ 
maybe means we need to open a ticket with legal to determine if we can 
distribute it and how we need to label if so, or clear signal that we need to 
remove it and find an alternative if not.
