Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-611) Clarify NOTICE is not required for JcrUtils from JackRabbit
Date Fri, 20 May 2016 08:20:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-611?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15292989#comment-15292989

Stian Soiland-Reyes commented on VFS-611:
-----------------------------------------

We got verification from the original author on [dev@jackrabbit|https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/Zsvdz0jsv2cv0q1]:

Your assumption is correct.

The NOTICE entry refers to code from the original Day Software grant that
accompanied Jackrabbit's entry to the Incubator (
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/JcrProposal).

The JcrUtils class was contributed under normal CLA and thus doesn't need
extra NOTICE entries.

Best,

As technically the code comment about this was added after 2.1 I've set the Fix Version for
2.2.

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

> (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.
