Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Discuss Release Apache Flex FalconJX 0.5.0 RC1
Date Mon, 09 Nov 2015 23:09:47 GMT

Here’s the issues I currently see with the binary releases (taken form this nightly build)

For apache-flex-falconjx-0.5.0-bin:
- NOTICE is missing original developer
- NOTICE is missing parts from NOTICE contained in [1] + others (i.e. the original developer
of the bundled software). Either that or the NOTICE in the jars is incorrect.
- I’d also add (as we’re bundling compc.jar) (Just to be safe as it's hard to know if
it includes that code or not).
The asc compiler contains code written by Jeff Dyer at: 
    Copyright Mountain View Compiler Company (1998-2003).

For completeness I also looked at apache-flex-falcon-0.5.0-bin.tar.gz as at some point it
will need to be fixed.

NOTICE is missing parts from:
 - NOTICE contained in [2]
 - NOTICE contained in [3]
 - NOTICE contained in [4]
 - NOTICE contained in [5]

All strictly speaking there several different products mentioned in NOTICE files should be
added. As while the copyright holder may be the same the product name and years differ.

I’m not sure how Apache 1.1 items should [4][5] be treated but as the terms are different
from the 2.0 license I assume it the best way would be to  placed them in LICENSE.

LICENSE is also missing:
- BSD licenses javacc [6]
- MPL licensed saxon [7]
- items bundled in xalan [8] (see *.LICENSE.txt files)
- W3C licenses in xml commons [11][12]
- MIT license for swfobject [13]

Possibly these BSD need to be added to LICENSE or the files not included?? [14][15]
