Jukka Zitting updated COMPRESS-72:
----------------------------------

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.1)

Not necessary to resolve this in time for 1.1.

> Move acknowledgements from NOTICE to README
> -------------------------------------------
>
>                 Key: COMPRESS-72
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-72
>             Project: Commons Compress
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.0
>            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
>            Priority: Minor
>
> 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.
