      Description

      The following files were highlighted as being incompatible BSD 4-clause license (http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-a) by PMC member Justin Mclean. He also provided a link (ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/pub/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change) indicating the advertising clause has since been rescinded and this might not be an issue. This needs to be validated.

      • src/backend/port/dynloader/freebsd.c
      • src/backend/port/dynloader/netbsd.c
      • src/backend/port/dynloader/openbsd.c
      • src/bin/gpfdist/src/gpfdist/glob.c
      • src/bin/gpfdist/src/gpfdist/include/glob.h
      • src/include/port/win32_msvc/glob.h
      • src/port/glob.c

      The third clause should be replaced as follows:

      original

       * 3. All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software
       *    must display the following acknowledgement:
       *      This product includes software developed by the University of
       *      California, Berkeley and its contributors.
      

      new

       * 3. <BSD Advertising Clause omitted per the July 22, 1999 licensing change 
       *		ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/pub/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change> 
      

      Here is an external example of it's use: http://code.metager.de/source/xref/busybox/libbb/progress.c
