Subject Re: Handling of LICENSE and NOTICE file
Date Mon, 17 Dec 2007 08:45:25 GMT
Maven does provide support for these files.
The correct way is to use the maven-remote-resources-plugin and use the
apache resource set for example.
Unfortunately, this is incompatible with bundles because the BND tool won't
include these easily
