Subject AW: cvs commit: ant/proposal/xdocs/src/org/apache/tools/ant/taskd efs SubAnt.xml
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 07:20:20 GMT
At the moment the process is that:
- Java source has the license statement, mergefile has not (but its only in
- XDoclet extracts infos from sourcefile, but not the copyright statement
(only in 
  normal comment block, not in javadoc comment)
? something (XDoclet, Velocity? havent found the source) merges both files
- Velocity generates the HTML

And the copyright statement is hardcoded in the DVSL script:

proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0126:   <!-- PAGE FOOTER -->
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0127:   <tr>
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0128:     <td>
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0129:       <div align="center"><font
color="$body-link" size="-1"><em>
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0130:         Copyright &#169; 2000-2003, Apache
Software Foundation
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0131:       </em></font></div>
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0132:     </td>
proposal/dvsl/task.dvsl:0133:   </tr>

I agree with having the copyright years in both of them, because - if the
manual generation
will be the official way - the mergefiles are part of the src-distro and
therefor under ASF
So we have to merge these two statements into one statement for generated
html page.
  java:2000-2003 + merge:2004 = html:2000-2004
  java:2000,2002-2003+merge:2003 = html:2000,2002-2003
would be a peace to think about ...
