Subject [Db-derby Wiki] Update of "FixingLicenseHeader" by DavidVanCouvering
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2006 00:04:12 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Db-derby Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by DavidVanCouvering:

  Through this page I hope to coordinate the efforts of multiple people (meaning at least
one more than '''me''') working through all the Derby source files and modifying their license
- There are some scripts to do this.  I am fine-tuning them for Derby and then will post them
here along with instructions.
+ Here are the scripts to do this:
+     * attachment:relicense.txt
+     * attachment:insert_license.pl
+     * attachment:update-AL20.pl
+ The file relicense.txt provides instructions on how to do this.  Basically here is what
I do:
+    * Pick a directory
+    * Run insert_license.pl as a practice run.  Investigate log, and if OK, re-run without
-p.  You may need to tweak the extensions and comment settings for a given file type, but
I think I've fixed most of these.  One thing I noticed is that shell scripts without a #!
leading comment need to be adjusted
+    * Run update-AL20.pl as a practice run.  Investigate log, and if it looks OK, re-run
without -p
+    * Look at the svn diff output
+    * Do a clean build and make sure it builds
+    * Do any other sanity checking you think needs to be done
+    * Commit
  Below is a table showing all directories, with assignees and status.  Grab a directory or
an entire subtree by putting your
  name in the Assignee column (you can delete subdirectories if you're grabbing a subtree)
and start working on it.

  It is generally recommended to convert and commit a single directory at a time.  This makes
the changes easier to
  scan for errors and the size of the commits stay manageable.  However in some cases if there
is a subtree that does not 
  have a lot of files, you can probably do the subtree in one go.
- '''NOTE''': At this point, we can not remove the copyright notice from existing license
headers.  That issue should 
- hopefully be resolved in the next few days.
