Subject [jira] Commented: (COMMONSSITE-21) commons-parent-6 pom changes

Niall Pemberton commented on COMMONSSITE-21:
--------------------------------------------

The "ASF Source Header and Copyright Notice Policy" [1] deals with the contents (example[2]
from that doc) of the NOTICE file (is there any other relevant policy docs?) - to be honest
I find it a little vague since it uses words like "may" rather than "must".

I agree though that for anything more complex than the AL2 its probably too blunt an instrument
- but do we have any components currently in commons that have the scenarios you are bringing
up? Because if we don't then isn't it pointless raising theoretical objections. For me the
remote resources plugin isn't quite their yet - but down the road I could see it working well
for most components. The best solution IMO is what I suggested earlier - if the remote resources
plugin only generated a NOTICE file if there wasn''t already one specified in the projects
resources. That way components that needed all sorts of 3rd party stuff could manually craft
their NOTICE file - while the majority just get it generated.
