Subject Re: [Vote] Release Rampart 1.6.2 and Sandesha 1.6.2
Date Sat, 28 Apr 2012 17:22:39 GMT
I was not actually referring to a specific guideline, but that is how it
was stored in my head about Apache releases :-). After seeing the guideline
docs you shared, I found this [1], in which, under the section on NOTICE
file it states that LICENSE and NOTICE should be on the top level dir.

However I do not think it is a hard and fast rule, so it may not block the
release. OTOH, I think it is generally a good practice to have the LICENSE
and NOTICE files in a standard place (otherwise somebody can hide it some
where down the folder structure and say that "I satisfy the requirements"
;-) ) May be we should consult legal@ ??

Given that we are fixing it for the next release, I think we can go ahead
with the release.
