Subject [jira] [Created] (WHISKER-7) Document When Copyright Notice Is Appropriate
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2012 21:20:13 GMT
Robert Burrell Donkin created WHISKER-7:
-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Document When Copyright Notice Is Appropriate 
                 Key: WHISKER-7
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WHISKER-7
             Project: Apache Whisker
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Robert Burrell Donkin
            Assignee: Robert Burrell Donkin


copyright-notice is intended to help licenses such as the MIT License where a copyright claim
is conventionally included right at the top of the license text. 

Other licences (such as Apache License, Version 2) are slient on copyright claims or use a
NOTICE to contain collective copyright claims. For primary licenses of this sort, to ensure
that the copyright claims end up in the NOTICE (where they belong) these claims need to be
included in the notice sections.

This wasn't very well explain and is confusing. Documentation needs to be improved.
