Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-371) LICENSE.txt should mention lib/licenses
Date Thu, 20 Aug 2009 21:39:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-371?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12745677#action_12745677

Eric Evans commented on CASSANDRA-371:
--------------------------------------

A fair amount of discussion took place during and after the vote for 0.4.0-beta1, and in a
separate (but related) discussion that followed.

http://www.mail-archive.com/general@incubator.apache.org/msg22150.html
http://www.mail-archive.com/general@incubator.apache.org/msg22207.html

Consensus in these discussions was that all license information should be included *in* LICENSE.txt,
and attributions for all software that requires it should be in NOTICE.txt.

This was reenforced by a link to an existing document, and incubator documentation was updated
to reflect this opinion.
