Subject [jira] Created: (COMPRESS-72) Move acknowledgements from NOTICE to README
Date Thu, 21 May 2009 10:12:45 GMT
Move acknowledgements from NOTICE to README
-------------------------------------------

                 Key: COMPRESS-72
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-72
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
            Priority: Minor


The NOTICE.txt file in commons-compress contains the following entries:

    Original BZip2 classes contributed by Keiron Liddle
    <keiron@aftexsw.com>, Aftex Software to the Apache Ant project

    Original Tar classes from contributors of the Apache Ant project

    Original Zip classes from contributors of the Apache Ant project

    Original CPIO classes contributed by Markus Kuss and the jRPM project
    (jrpm.sourceforge.net)

It's good that we acknowledge contributions, but having those entries in the NOTICE file is
not appropriate unless the licensing of the original contributions explicitly required such
attribution notices.

I suggest that we move these entries to a README.txt file.
