Subject [jira] [Resolved] (RAT-206) Add support for Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 and Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 licenses
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2015 08:48:06 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAT-206?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Philipp Ottlinger resolved RAT-206.
-----------------------------------
       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 0.12)

Following the discussions on legal-discuss@ the problem is that CC-licenses are not really
fitting for source code files. 

In order for RAT to verify license compliance you can add the CC-headers manually and add
this CC-license as a default license to your RAT plugin configuration. Otherwise you may exclude
the CC-licensed documentation files from the RAT.

Therefore I close the ticket as won't fix.

If you need help how to add new licenses have a look at examples:  https://github.com/ottlinger/creadur-rat-examples/tree/master/RAT-179/maven

> It would be very nice if support for the "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5"
and "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0" licenses could be added to Rat.
> Background: The documentation of the incubating Groovy Project is licensed under  "Creative
Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0" and according to: [https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#cc-sa]
this is o.k. but, Rat does not seem to recognize the license.
