Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-386) All distributions (source and binary) need to include NOTICE file
Date Tue, 13 Jun 2006 18:33:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-386?page=comments#action_12416050 ] 

Craig Russell commented on JDO-386:
-----------------------------------

I added a NOTICE.txt file and created a distribution, but it didn't contain the NOTICE.txt
file. 

There are many places where the LICENSE.txt file appears. There is one at trunk/LICENSE.txt,
trunk/<project>/LICENSE.txt, trunk/<project>/META-INF/LICENSE.txt. Why so many?
How do we get NOTICE.txt to be put into the source and jar files similar to LICENSE (and preferably
NOT duplicating NOTICE.txt in 20 places)?

> The distributions need to include a NOTICE file in the same directory as the LICENSE
file. Both the source and binary distributions need this file.
> For details, see http://www.apache.org/dev/apply-license.html#new summarized as follows:
> "A NOTICE file should be included in the same directory as the LICENSE file. The NOTICE
should include only those attribution notices that are required by any part of the entire
distribution. For Apache projects and those redistributing ASF software, the NOTICE file must
contain the sentence:
>    This product includes software developed by
>    The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).
> The license is applied to each source file (code and documentation, but excluding the
LICENSE and NOTICE files) by including a short copyright notice at the top, as demonstrated
by the boilerplate notice provided in the appendix."
> I've filed this under tck20 and api20 but it applies to all Apache distributions.
