Subject Any thoughts on appropriate use of Windows VERSIONINFO for bundled ASF projects?
Date Tue, 29 Oct 2013 12:18:42 GMT
I'd like to see how to tweak the .rc files/build to make it easy to
identify the files properly -- what is the underlying open source
project/version, where did you get them.  IOW, route the credit and
liability to the appropriate, different places.  That's a good thing for
everybody.

E.g., bundler uses

CompanyName=Internet Widgits Pty Ltd
ProductName=WidgetStack
ProductVersion=1.0.3
ProductVersionNumber=1.0.3.0

and leaves the rest alone

e.g.,

FileVersion=2.4.6
FileVersionNumber=2.4.6.0
FileDescription=Apache HTTP Server Core

or

FileVersion=1.5.2
FileVersionNumber=1.5.2.0
FileDescription=Apache Portable Runtime Utility Library

LegalCopyright and Comments such as "Licensed under the Apache License..."
are also interesting; IANAL ;)

A bundler may want the comments to have a statement clarifying that the
file is a component of &product;, originally obtained from &ossproject; and
possibly including fixes and enhancements not originally in that oss
version, and supported through &product; support channels.
