Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1752) Fix javadoc to account for changes required by new licence header policy.
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2006 21:47:25 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1752?page=comments#action_12431713 ] 
            
Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-1752:
----------------------------------------------

The header text in http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#header-text  is clearly designed
for source header files, look at the title of the page and sub-sections and the wording of
the header.

I don't think that page is meant to cover introductions to Apache software that state it is
being released under the ALv2.

The copyright notice covering the collected works is just a copy of the copyright notice from
the NOTICE file which is covered here

http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice

Note there is no requirement to have these lines in the oveview file since the licence itself
is defined in the LICENCE file, I just thought they were helpful and clarifying when I created
this overview:

"Apache Derby is an open source subproject of the Apache DB project, licensed under the Apache
License, Version 2.0."

Note also the meaning of the lines above "the whole project is released under ALv2", the lines
you replace them with (from the source header) mean "this file is released under ALv2".

Note I have the same concern about the new copyright pages in the documentation, the same
source header is used, when a simple statement of it's released under the ALv2  seems to be
more appropriate.

replaced with the collected works copyright,.
