Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSERVER-2099) NOTICE and LICENSE files for DS 2.0.0-M20 are incorrect
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2015 07:39:26 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-2099:

There are 2 NOTICE files present in the directory :
- at the root level
- in the {{installers-maven-plugin/src/main/resources/org/apache/directory/server/installers/}}

the second one is the one being distributed with the packages we provide. The first file contains
informations related to OpenLDAP which are not required, it should be removed.

I'll check if we are still dependning on the Safehaus JUG project, but AFAICT, it's not anymore
the case.

> NOTICE files are for *required* notices only; they must not contain anything that is
not required.
> LICENSE files must contain the text of all applicable licences, or pointers to the license
(which must be included in the distribution).
> See the process described here [1]
> I think that there are problems with both of these files.
> The NOTICE file contains a lot of extraneous text.
> The block enclosed in === should be removed entirely, as well as the following paragraph,
which is an unnecessary duplicate.
> AFAICT the references to SafeHaus JUG and Clinton Begin don't need to be in the NOTICE
file either.
> The LICENSE file says that JUG is licensed under AL v2.
> However it does not say which version of JUG is included.
> Similarly for the other 3rd party licences.
> The NOTICE file mentions software by Clinton Begin, but there is no corresponding mention
in the LICENSE file.
> All bundled software must be documented in the LICENSE file.
> Entries in the NOTICE file must only be made if required.
