Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1377) Update copyright headers to comply with new ASF policy
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 17:38:15 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1377?page=comments#action_12422723 ] 
            
David Van Couvering commented on DERBY-1377:
--------------------------------------------

>From the FAQ at http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html

"With few exceptions, all human-readable Apache-developed files that are included within a
distribution must include the header text."

and

"A file without any degree of creativity in either its literal elements or its structure is
not protected by copyright law; therefore, such a file does not require a license header.
If in doubt about the extent of the file's creativity, add the license header to the file."

I have noticed that there are a some files in Derby currently with no header.  In the root
directory I see build.xml, index.html, README, published_api_overview.html.  Shouldn't these
have license headers?
