Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4144) User Manual PDF doesn't include copyright or license information
Date Sun, 14 Feb 2016 08:46:18 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-4144:

Reading through the related discussions, it seems that this particular situation is still
being discussed under LEGAL-114. If I were to do this over again, I'd adopt what we already
have in 1.7 and later, which I think is fine, but I don't think it's worth changing it in
1.6 now. I also don't find it worth our time to try to figure out how to move it outside the
body and into the PDF metadata with pdflatex during the build, especially since we've stopped
generating the PDF in newer branches.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Accumulo
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.5, 1.7.0, 1.8.0, 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Sean Busbey
>            Assignee: Christopher Tubbs
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.6.5
>          Time Spent: 0.5h
>  Remaining Estimate: 0h
> We publish the user manual PDF outside of our normal site (in the maven repo), but the
generated PDF doesn't have any kind of copyright statement or a note about licensing.
> Since this is definitely published externally (and as a part of our release handling)
it seems like it should have some indication. Even though it's a "binary format" strictly
speaking, it's consumed as text by humans so we should give them some pointers.
> It seems like it should go on either the title page or a page immediately following it?
