I'm trying to harden an HTML sanitizer for Java, http://code.google.com/p/owasp-java-html-sanitizer/ , which is licensed under New BSD.

HTMLPurifier has a great <a href="http://repo.or.cz/w/htmlpurifier.git/blob/HEAD:/smoketests/xssAttacks.xml">test suite</a> that I'd like to incorporate.

How is that licensed? Are HTMLPurifier contributor's generally OK with other project's copying their test suite?

cheers, mike

Hello Mike,

HTML Purifier's test suite is LGPL licensed, so you can't redistribute it as New BSD, but you can add an extra note that the test suite is LGPL and keep your main application New BSD.

Hope that helps.
