Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1241) Update ASF copyrights?
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 19:55:17 GMT


Billie Rinaldi commented on ACCUMULO-1241:

bq. Yes, those headers were mostly added after this ticket was created. However, the question
about whether the header should include copyright still applies to non-java files.

The headers should not include copyright information unless the files are from third parties,
in which case we should not change the headers or add our own.  See

"Third party" means non-ASF, so for the code we've borrowed from other ASF projects we could
standardize the headers.  But again, I personally like knowing exactly which files did not
originate with Accumulo.

bq. When you say "borrowed", do you mean, a derivative work or dependency?

I believe the bloomfilter and blockfile/cache packages have minor modifications, and flot
is unmodified?

> 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).
> 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. Most, if not all, non-java files don't
have them.
