Jul 29, 2004, 17:39 (5 Talkback[s])
In a big step to reaffirm its commitment to open source
technologies, Computer Associates will officially open source its
long forgotten database software at LinuxWorld in San Francisco
CA officials confirmed the company will open source version 3 of
its Ingres Enterprise Relational Database (Ingres r3) under its own
CA Trusted Open Source License (CA-TOSL), a variation of the common
public license from opensource.org.
Under CA-TOSL, software vendors can incorporate Ingres into
their software as long as the Ingres source code is provided with
it. CA will charge for support and indemnification as added-cost
options to the CA-TOSL Ingres.
