Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-386) All distributions (source and binary) need to include NOTICE file
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2006 22:59:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-386?page=comments#action_12416425 ] 

Craig Russell commented on JDO-386:

Thanks for the comments on how JPOX does it. I think we can use a similar strategy here. 

The following is a proposal for including the NOTICE.txt in our svn sources and distributions.

I'd like to have exactly one copy of each of LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt for the project in
the trunk. So we should get rid of all of the LICENSE.txt files lower in the tree.

For the source distributions, we currently build a directory structure that contains README.txt
and LICENSE.txt in the top level of the distribution, and that's where the NOTICE.txt should

For the binary jar distributions, we currently build a META-INF directory with the manifest
and LICENSE.txt, andMETA-INF is where the NOTICE.txt should go.

>      Project: JDO

>   Components: api20, tck20

>      Fix For: JDO 2 maintenance release 1

> 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.
