Subject [jira] [Commented] (EDGENT-418) Think LICENSE/NOTICE in binary release .jar & .war are wrong
Date Tue, 30 May 2017 15:47:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EDGENT-418?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16029588#comment-16029588

John D. Ament commented on EDGENT-418:

The LICENSE and NOTICE contain information relevant to this package.  If a JAR has transitive
dependencies, those shouldn't be included.  However, if you have an uber jar then that should
include all relevant notices/licenses.

Likewise, since a WAR contains other packages, its NOTICE/LICENSE should represent all of
its contents.

>            Priority: Critical
> An email thread on LICENSE/NOTICE in a .war on general@incubator got me thinking/checking
re Edgent.
> The Edgent binary release bundle (.tgz) has a custom/appropriate LICENSE and NOTICE file.
> The Edgent binary release .jar/.war artifacts only have pretty much stock LICENSE &
NOTICE files in them.  That seems incorrect.  (it's not clear to me if we can just use the
same binary-bundle's LICENSE/NOTICE in each .jar/.war or if each one has to have customization
for that particular artifact.  I hope it's the former (common ones for all binary artifacts).
> Today these artifacts are only released as part of the binary-bundle so at least it has
the correct info at the top level.  But in the hopefully near future we will also be publishing
on maven-central and then it seems even more important to get .jar/.war contents correct.
