Subject [jira] Commented: (COMPRESS-72) Move acknowledgements from NOTICE to README
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2009 04:40:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-72?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12737421#action_12737421

Christian Grobmeier commented on COMPRESS-72:
---------------------------------------------

I wrote an E-Mail to the CPIO contributors. They have changed their license to ASL 2.0 to
fit into compress. As discussed this would have been enough to include this code.

Bzip2: this notice was in the code, as far as I know.

>             Project: Commons Compress
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.0

> The NOTICE.txt file in commons-compress contains the following entries:
> {noformat}
> 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)
> {noformat}
> 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.
