Subject [jira] [Updated] (DRILL-1274) Update License file to correctly identify source inclusions versus binary inclusions
Date Fri, 29 Aug 2014 19:25:53 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-1274?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Aditya Kishore updated DRILL-1274:

    Attachment: 0002-DRILL-1274-Update-License-file-to-correctly-identify.patch

The attached patch {{0002-DRILL-1274-Update-License-file-to-correctly-identify.patch}} supersedes
the previous one and includes the same files in both source and binary distribution, however
the text clearly mentions that these 3rd party libraries are included only in the binary form
and in the binary distribution of the project.

This brings Drill's LICENSE[1] and NOTICE[2] files to be more in line with
other similar Apache projects.

> Issues found with last release:
> - LICENSE file is not correct - looks like quite a few things need to be removed as they
are not actually bundled in the source artefact. The LICENSE file in the source artefact should
only reference software that is actually bundled in the source release.
> - LICENSE file doesn't need to contain references to Apache licensed software only MIT
and BSD software. Each bundled Apache software may modify the NOTICE file.
> - LICENSE issue "The compiled Apache Drill distribution includes the following sources/binaries."
is incorrect as a source distribution shouldn't normally contain binaries.
> - LICENSE refers to CDDL licensed, CPL licensed, EPL licensed and MPL licensed software
- all which are category B licences. Are these actually included in the source release and
if so how? And if they are included why are they not in the NOTICE file (as per [2]) If not
included why are these mentioned in the the LICENCES file at all?
> I think the issue is we're using the same license file for both source and binary tarballs.
 We need to separate these out.
