Stian Soiland-Reyes created VFS-611:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: Clarify NOTICE is not required for JcrUtils from JackRabbit
                 Key: VFS-611
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-611
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 2.1
            Reporter: Stian Soiland-Reyes
             Fix For: 2.1


In reviewing an RC for Apache Commons VFS 2.1

https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/Zjouqd6cpmohrj3

we wondered about a file

https://github.com/apache/commons-vfs/blob/trunk/core/src/test/java/org/apache/commons/vfs2/provider/webdav/test/JcrUtils.java

which we have adapted from Jackrabbit 2.4.0.

Jackrabbit has a NOTICE which includes

> Based on source code originally developed by
> Day Software (http://www.day.com/).


Looking at the git history

https://github.com/apache/jackrabbit/commits/trunk/jackrabbit-jcr-commons/src/main/java/org/apache/jackrabbit/commons/JcrUtils.java

I think this file was earliest added in JackRabbit in 2009 by Jukka Zitting:

https://github.com/apache/jackrabbit/commit/0882a5cc1ed4ce1cf9d3c6b3a592f97c5772ce25

(first released in 1.6.0 and 2.0-alpha1 )

We believe that as this file was added 3 years after graduating from the Incubator it is not
covered by the "Day Software" NOTICE requirement and is just made by Apache Software Foundation
- in which case no special self-attribution is needed in VFS's NOTICE file.

I've asked on dev@jackrabbit just to verify:
