Subject [jira] [Commented] (QUARKS-135) Base NOTICE file could be simpler
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2016 19:40:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QUARKS-135?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15232789#comment-15232789

Kathy Saunders commented on QUARKS-135:
---------------------------------------

I checked with an IBM attorney and he prefers this, so I will create a new pull request to
replace the old notice with this:

Portions of this software were developed by IBM Corp.
Copyright IBM Corp. 2015, 2016


> Base NOTICE file could be simpler
> ---------------------------------
>
>                 Key: QUARKS-135
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QUARKS-135
>             Project: Quarks
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Justin Mclean
>
> I think the current NOTICE file could be reduced to this:
> Apache Quarks (incubating)
> Copyright 2016 The Apache Software Foundation
> This product includes software developed at
> The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).
> Portions of this software were developed at
> International Business Machines Corporation, copyright 2015 and 2016.
> IMO there's no need to list copying headers from the initial software grant. Only relocated
headers that have been changed to Apache with the owners permission [1] need to be added to
NOTICE. It's good to try and keep NOTICE as small as needed to make it easier for downstream
projects [2]
> 1. http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#headers
> 2. http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#mod-notice
> It will still require additions due to bundling Apache licensed software containing NOTICE
files.
