  • Is Spring Modules Open Source?

    First see Open Source definition at:
    there is a
    5. No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups

    Spring Modules is hosted on which has restrictions about some people and countries.

    It is impossible for me to even view the Spring Modules web from my country...

    So I believe Spring Modules must be transported to a host without restrictions to be a true open source project.

    Who is blocking your access?

    Is it or your country that is blocking access? Is it your own company blocking access? Does spring modules get mirrored to other sites that you can access? I wouldn't start making generalizations such as this without having done a little more investigation.

      it is the that has restrictions on people from some countries.

      by the way, there are too many open source projects hosted on and well none of them is accessible from my country (including the JDK, Appfuse, Spring Modules, ...)

            I think it is a bit short-sighted to blame this one on the project. It is the problem of the hosting platform. Not that of the project.

            I'm not sure but isn't Spring Modules not also in the maven repositories, so you should be able to get it from there.

              What about accessing through Tor?



              If you install Tor, are you able to get to the site?

                well, I don't blame the project, but I believe the project must be moved to another host (maybe itself) without these kinda restrictions. Or must do something for it...
