Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSERVER-2099) NOTICE and LICENSE files for DS 2.0.0-M20 are incorrect
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2015 07:49:26 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-2099:

We aren't using Spring anymore, so the reference to Clinton Begin (which coms from the Spring
license) has to be removed from our NOTICE files.

> 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.
