Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1324) Need to remove old copyright notice
Date Tue, 16 May 2006 07:59:07 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1324?page=all ]

Andrew McIntyre updated DERBY-1324:

    Attachment: derby-1324.diff

Attaching a patch to resolve the noted issues. A search for similar issues did not turn up
any further problems. All of these notices appeared in the original source drop of Derby,
so I am confident that removing them is the right thing to do. I *think* the copyright notices
that have been removed are covered by the existing entries in COPYRIGHT and NOTICE. 

BUT, the text in COPYRIGHT covers 1997,2004 and one of the copyright notices removed by this
patch is (c) 2003. Do I need to update COPYRIGHT to include the 2003 date? e.g. (c) 1997,2003-2004?
In the land of lawyerdom, pedanticism rules, so opinions (IANAL-or-otherwise) are appreciated
as to whether updating the dates are necessary.

If there are no further comments, I will assume lazy consensus and commit this patch as-is
some time tomorrow, along with followup patches for 10.1 and 10.0.
