Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1241) Update ASF copyrights?
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 16:47:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1241?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13636586#comment-13636586
] 

Billie Rinaldi commented on ACCUMULO-1241:
------------------------------------------

bq. Most, if not all, non-java files don't have them.
Most non-java files have Apache headers.  We have > 500 non-java files, and only 76 files
without Apache license headers (all of which are binary, README/LICENSE/NOTICE, or other-licensed
files).

bq. Some of the older java files also have an inconsistent Apache License 2.0 header, and
some of those have copyright notices and some don't.

The files with copyright notices are ones that we borrowed from other projects and thus have
not changed their headers.  We could consider standardizing the ones that came from Apache
projects, but I like being able to distinguish borrowed code.  I grepped for copyright in
all files and found the following:

To be expected:
 * ./LICENSE (doesn't have dates for our code)
 * ./NOTICE (Copyright 2001-2013 The Apache Software Foundation)

Borrowed from other projects:
 * ./core/src/main/java/org/apache/accumulo/core/bloomfilter/
 * ./core/src/main/java/org/apache/accumulo/core/file/blockfile/cache/
 * ./server/src/main/resources/web/flot/

The ones we should think about:
 * ./assemble/pom.xml (<copyright>2011 The Apache Software Foundation.</copyright>)
 * ./core/src/main/java/org/apache/accumulo/core/data/Value.java -- have we changed this enough
from BytesWritable that we can apply a standard header?

> I'm not entirely sure how the copyright notices work, but I think the dates need to be
updated, if present. At the very least, the documentation probably needs to be updated to
reflect updated dates. Also, the RPM/DEB package info might need to be updated (I think I
saw a 2011 in there somewhere).
