Zimbra license

J Lovejoy

Hi All,

It’s come to my attention that we have another license “version” issue…

Zimbra 1.3 is on SPDX list - http://spdx.org/licenses/Zimbra-1.3
This license uses “VMWare” throughout and states in the beginning: 
"VMVMware, Inc., a Delaware corporation having its principal place of business at 3401 Hillview Avenue, Palo Alto, California 94304 ("VMware”)”
and at the end:
"All disputes arising out of this Agreement involving VMware or any of its subsidiaries shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the federal or state courts of northern California, with venue lying in Santa Clara County, California.”

The SPDX License List also lists for another url: http://www.zimbra.com/license/zimbra-public-license-1-3.html 
However, this (now) simply redirects to version 1.4 link:  http://www.zimbra.com/legal/zimbra-public-license-1-4

A merge-and-compare of version 1.3 and version 1.4 at this link, shows that it is the same license except:
- “VMWare” is replace with “Zimbra” throughout;
- VMWare is a Texas Corporation, as stated in the beginning of the license; and
- at the end of the license, it states instead:  "Zimbra 1.4 (not on SPDX list) - Zimbra, Texas Corporation, and "All disputes arising out of this Agreement involving Zimbra or any of its parents or subsidiaries shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the federal or state courts of Northern Texas, with venue lying in Dallas County, Texas."

What to do????
