MySQL FOSS License Exception We want free and open source software applications under certain licenses to be able to use the GPL-licensed MySQL Connector (specified GPL-licensed MySQL client libraries) despite the fact that not all such FOSS licenses are compatible with version 2 of the GNU General Public License. Therefore there are special exceptions to the terms and conditions of the GPLv2 as applied to these client libraries, which are identified and described in more detail in the FOSS License Exception at <http://www.mysql.com/about/legal/licensing/foss-exception.html> This software is OSI Certified Open Source Software. OSI Certified is a certification mark of the Open Source Initiative.

Oracle's FOSS License Exception Terms and Conditions

    1. Definitions. "Derivative Work" means a derivative work, as defined
       under applicable copyright law, formed entirely from the Program and
       one or more FOSS Applications.

       "FOSS Application" means a free and open source software application
       distributed subject to a license listed in the section below titled
       "FOSS License List."

       "FOSS Notice" means a notice placed by Oracle or MySQL in a copy of
       the MySQL Client Libraries stating that such copy of the MySQL Client
       Libraries may be distributed under Oracle's or MySQL's FOSS (or FLOSS)
       License Exception.

       "Independent Work" means portions of the Derivative Work that are not
       derived from the Program and can reasonably be considered independent
       and separate works.

       "Program" means a copy of Oracle's MySQL Client Libraries that
       contains a FOSS Notice.

    2. A FOSS application developer ("you" or "your") may distribute a
       Derivative Work provided that you and the Derivative Work meet all of
       the following conditions:

         a. You obey the GPL in all respects for the Program and all portions
            (including modifications) of the Program included in the
            Derivative Work (provided that this condition does not apply to
            Independent Works);
         b. The Derivative Work does not include any work licensed under the
            GPL other than the Program;
         c. You distribute Independent Works subject to a license listed in
            the section below titled "FOSS License List";
         d. You distribute Independent Works in object code or executable
            form with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code
            on the same medium and under the same FOSS license applying to
            the object code or executable forms;
         e. All works that are aggregated with the Program or the Derivative
            Work on a medium or volume of storage are not derivative works of
            the Program, Derivative Work or FOSS Application, and must
            reasonably be considered independent and separate works.

    3. Oracle reserves all rights not expressly granted in these terms and
       conditions. If all of the above conditions are not met, then this FOSS
       License Exception does not apply to you or your Derivative Work.

Conditions.
