Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2745) README file missing license header
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2014 21:29:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2745?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13983581#comment-13983581

Mike Drob commented on ACCUMULO-2745:
-------------------------------------

Other README files in our repository missing licence headers are:

conf/examples/crypto/readme.txt
test/compat/japi-compliance/README

However, these may be minimal enough to qualify for exception status. The ASF guidelines suggest
adding source headers if there is doubt.

> The README file in the root of our repository is missing a license header. This is a
problem because if somebody was given the README file outside of the context of our distribution,
then they would not know what rights they had to it.
> The README is a large document with lots of creative content, therefore it is not exempt
from ASF policy in this area.
