Subject [jira] [Resolved] (EDGENT-133) Ensure correct LICENCE and NOTICE are in Quarks jar files
Date Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:32:20 GMT

Dale LaBossiere resolved EDGENT-133.
    Resolution: Fixed

The gradle build, via PR-195, addresses this issue.  
The, soon to be history, ant build remains as is.

> Currently the top-level LICENSE and NOTICE files are copied into each Quarks file.
> Currently that is the correct behaviour, however as the LICENSE and NOTICE files are
changed to represent the contents of the entire source tree that will no longer be correct.
> From the guiding principle [1] "The LICENSE and NOTICE files must exactly represent the
contents of the distribution they reside in".
> Any jar created by the build (e.g. target/java8/lib/quarks.api.optlet.jar) is itself
a distribution, so its LICENSE & NOTICE must exactly represent its contents. As [2] says:
"As far as LICENSE and NOTICE are concerned, only bundled bits matter."
> So, any(*) Java jar currently produced only includes Quarks class files, dependent jars
are not bundled in the Quarks jar, so their LICENCE is ALV2. For the NOTICE file there are
two choices:
>  1) The current NOTICE file containing IBM copyrights and Apache Quarks info but no third-party
dependency. Jars that contain any (IBM) code that existed at the time the repo was first populated
at the ASF.
>  2) A NOTICE file containing Apache Quarks info but no third-party dependency. This would
be for jars that only contain code created since the project repo was at the ASF (which most
likely means jars created since then).
> * I believe it is all Quarks jar, but it will need to verified as thw work proceeds.
