I hope that David can commit the work for DERBY-1377 before we cut the 
10.2 branch next week. Unfortunately, I think David is stuck because 
it's unclear what's required. Here's where I think this issue stands:


1) Do we need to add license headers to our build scripts, property 
files, README files, and other human-readable files which currently 
don't have copyright notices? Or are these files excluded under the 
rubric of "file without any degree of creativity"? Does some other 
escape-clause exlude these files?

2) Should the IBM copyrights migrate from the COPYRIGHT to the NOTICE 
file? If so, who is authorized to move these copyrights?

3) Are there other unclear issues?

I would like the community's guidance soon.
