Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49080] New: The copyright violation in ant sources: test.exe
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 10:35:34 GMT

           Summary: The copyright violation in ant sources: test.exe
           Product: Ant
           Version: nightly
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: notifications@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mvyskocil@suse.cz


The apache sources and svn [1] contains file called test.exe. Reading the
bug#16213 it seems to be self-extracting zip archive created by WinZip. However
running the test.exe displays a warning:

This copy of WinZip Self-Extractor is NOT LICENSED for distribution. Any
distribution of this file is prohibited and is a violation of US Copyright law
and international treaty.

And the content of the archive seems not correct at all - there are many
references to WinZip, so the content might be copyrighted too.

Please recreate test.exe using some free zip program (like InfoZip [3]) and
using copyright safe content - adding a README explaining it is also welcome.
