Subject Re: [DISCUSS] - Camel Maven Archetypes - Generating files with ASF license headers
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2012 08:19:43 GMT
My current understanding is that you can not assume you are allowed to 
use code if it has no license. Is there an exception for 
generated/template code?
If yes then I am supporting this but we should make sure this works 
legally. Can we get some confirmation about this from some license 
specialist from apache or is this written down somehere already?
