Logstash OSS distribution containing EULA


I was checking the license for logstash-oss and found a notice.txt file containing licenses of few dependencies. One among them is the


which is a notice added for Red Hat Universal Base Image minimal-8

Upon further investigation, it is found that redhat is being used in logstash github repo in qa/sys/redhat

Is this the only place where redhat base image is used?

The qa folder is missing in logstash-oss source code but still the notice.txt contains EULA for redhat even though redhat is not present.

The notice.txt for logstash-oss is exactly the same as the one in full distribution. Is this expected?

Is the EULA in notice.txt applicable when we build and use logstash-oss ?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi @RobBavey

I see you have worked in this PR Add RedHat Univeral Base Image license information by robbavey · Pull Request #12287 · elastic/logstash · GitHub

Hi team,

This is actually critical for us and it would be appreciated if we can get a response on this.

There is no SLA on this forum and only someone from Elastic can answer your question.

You may get a faster answer opening an issue in Logstash repository on github or maybe sending an e-mail to elastic_license@elastic.co.
