I want to apologize for my rapid response, I was incorrect about the license because of the file you pointed out. I did not intend to sound snarky or anything like that in either the original email or the reply.
Anyway, for future reference, I believe the last thread where this was discussed was here: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2014-April/031689.html, which basically reiterates what David says above (it's good to have links to the past discussions, IMO). Best Regards, Solly Ross P.S. Here's hoping that the JSHint devs eventually find a way to remove that line from the file -- according to https://github.com/jshint/jshint/issues/1234, not much of the original remains. ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Aaron Sahlin" <asah...@linux.vnet.ibm.com> > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Sent: Wednesday, September 10, 2014 1:35:48 PM > Subject: Re: [openstack-dev] [Horizon] Licensing issue with using JSHint in > build > > What you are finding is the same as I found, which raised my concern. > > Thanks for the pointer to legal-disc...@lists.openstack.org, I will post > the question there (let the lawyers figure it out). > > > > > On 9/10/2014 12:16 PM, Solly Ross wrote: > > ----- Original Message ----- > >> From: "Jeremy Stanley" <fu...@yuggoth.org> > >> To: "OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions)" > >> <email@example.com> > >> Sent: Wednesday, September 10, 2014 1:10:18 PM > >> Subject: Re: [openstack-dev] [Horizon] Licensing issue with using JSHint > >> in build > >> > >> On 2014-09-10 13:00:29 -0400 (-0400), Solly Ross wrote: > >>> JSHint *isn't* Douglas Crockford.
