Subject Re: NOTICE required for JcrUtils from Jackrabbit 2.4.0?
Date Thu, 19 May 2016 15:19:49 GMT
Hi,

Your assumption is correct.

The NOTICE entry refers to code from the original Day Software grant that
accompanied Jackrabbit's entry to the Incubator (
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/JcrProposal).

The JcrUtils class was contributed under normal CLA and thus doesn't need
extra NOTICE entries.

Best,

Jukka Zitting
