      Description

      Recently the Facebook BSD+patents license has been moved to Category X. Please see LEGAL-303 [1] for a discussion of this. The license is also referred to as the ROCKSDB license, even though Facebook BSD+patents is its more industry standard name.

      As triggered by Legal VP, Chris A. Mattmann, there are traces of the usage of dependencies using that license in Marmotta. Therefore we must clarify its usage in upcoming releases.

          RocksDB is only used under Ostrich experimental backend, so never released.

          Sebastian Schaffert, we may need to discuss how to proceed with this issue.

          Hi Sebastian - if you are using ROCKSDB in Marmotta prior to the latest two versions - where it has been changed to ALv2, then you need to remove it from your source tree unless it clearly is an "optional dependency" as defined https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#optional

          Fixed by removing the possible dependency, even though no RocksDB source code was used directly, it's easier to avoid the situation for a dependency that was anyways only experimental.
