Arrow Julia Library (2nd try) Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status


The Arrow Julia Library is a Julia language library for Apache Arrow. The Apache Arrow project did IP clearance process for the Arrow Julia Library before. (See Arrow Julia Library Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status for details.) But there is a problem in development process. In short, the Arrow Julia Library kept developing outside the Apache Arrow community. (See "Status of Arrow Julia implementation?" discussion on for details.) The Apache Arrow community discussed development process for the Arrow Julia Library and decided to restart the Arrow Julia Library with new development process from IP clearance. (See "[VOTE] Restart the Julia implementation with new repository and process" vote thread on for details.)
