Subject [jira] [Commented] (CMIS-749) Check LICENSE and NOTICE files

Gabriele Columbro commented on CMIS-749:
----------------------------------------

This was done when the project was promoted out of the incubation, following http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#distribute-other-artifacts
and mailing lists discussions with mentors as guideline.

Currently, and that was deemed OK at the time, by using the Maven automated generation of
LICENSE, NOTICE and DEPENDENCIES file, we do the following for every release package (JAR,
WAR and assemblies):

1. LICENSE contains:
    # A copy of the  Apache License
    # An additional text saying:
{noformat}
EXTERNAL DEPENDENCIES

This software depends on libraries with separate copyright notices and
license terms. Your use of these dependencies is subject to the licenses
referred to in the separate DEPENDENCIES file.
{noformat}

2. NOTICE contains this text
{noformat}
${project.artifactId}
Copyright 2009-2014 The Apache Software Foundation

This product includes software developed at
The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).
{noformat}
I am committing the same clarification in here for it to append:
{noformat}
EXTERNAL DEPENDENCIES

This software depends on libraries with separate copyright notices and
license terms. Your use of these dependencies is subject to the licenses
referred to in the separate DEPENDENCIES file.
{noformat}

3. A DEPENDENCIES file, automatically generated by Maven, which describes licenses for every
dependency. This file is clearly referred from LICENSE and NOTICE, and that was agreed as
a valid solution.

I will resolve this issue and proceed with the release, but please feel free to reopen if
we need to change this. I know we spoke about this one, but after reviewing the release process
I don't have clear which changes are "legally" required at this point.
