I am trying to build my custom library for eye detection, tracking, blinking, smile etc. I am using below open samples instead of reinventing the wheel.



The CameraSource.Builder is tightly coupled with Detector like below

public Builder(Context context, Detector detector)

However, I prefer to accept Detector as a separate setter method - thay makes my life happier when it comes to testing. Also, I would like to modify open source code a little bit and package it in my existing custom SDK/library.

Am I allowed to modify it i.e renaming package, adding new methods etc. Off course I put same Copyright (C) The Android Open Source Project text on top of my new class. Does it causes any issues, when I commercialize my custom SDK?


From below link, I got some details
