Subject [Daemon] License file out-of-date
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2009 02:21:02 GMT
I notice that there is a LICENSE file located at
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/commons/proper/daemon/trunk/src/native/nt/procrun/LICENSE.
It includes the below content which I believe should be removed, as procrun
does not use any MD5 functions. This license is inherited from APR project.
The reason might be that Procrun took 2 pieces of code fragment from APR:
function agxGetOsLevel() in utils.c, and micro APX_ALIGN and
APX_ALIGN_DEFAULT in handles.h. If I'm correct, can someone help to remove
this unnecessary license part? Thanks a lot!
