Subject Re: Validation of release packages
Date Thu, 09 Sep 2010 13:17:15 GMT

Gab and my interpretation of the Apache third-party rules [1] is that 
all dependencies with Category B licences have to be mentioned in the 
NOTICE files with a link to the source code.

We have a bunch of CDDL dependencies. The names and links are already in 
the DEPENDENCIES files. We think copying the CDDL entries to NOTICE 
files should sufficient.

Any comments? Experts?
