Subject [jira] [Commented] (WHISKER-3) The license.vm template makes too many assumptions about skipping licensing details for the primary org and license type.
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2012 13:35:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WHISKER-3?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13487771#comment-13487771

Chip Childers commented on WHISKER-3:
-------------------------------------

The reason that I added it to the LICENSE document, was that many of the packages that CloudStack
is using don't require a notice, yet IMO projects should always provide information about
where a particular piece of software can be located.  Given that scenario, it seemed logical
to include the source link for the project in the LICENSE file.  The other option was to make
blank notice entries, but that didn't seem very efficient.  I'd be fine if that part of the
patch was ignored, but I personally think that it makes for a more complete LICENSE document.

> In using whisker to create the LICENSE file for Apache CloudStack, we found several template
issues that cause the app to skip license details for anything that shares the primary org
or primary license type.
> I'll attach a patch file with the changes that we are using to make the template work
for us.
