Subject Re: [legal] getting legal things straight
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2002 02:32:42 GMT
How about put all licenses in one big single file?  httpd-2.0 does that this
way.

http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/httpd-2.0/LICENSE?rev=1.5&content-type=tex
t/vnd.viewcvs-markup

If I make the software that depends on cocoon, I can just include this big
license file instead of a bunch of these.

Of course, big license file has _scalability_ problem.  i.e. You have to
edit the file if you add new software in cocoon.
