Subject Listing Apache-2.0 dependencies in LICENSE file
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2015 16:33:49 GMT
Hi guys,

I just updated our LICENSE of the binary distribution and noticed that we
also list dependencies which are licensed under Apache-2.0. As far as I
understand the ASF guidelines [1], this is not strictly necessary. Since it
is a lot of work to keep the list up to date, I was wondering whether we
want to remove Apache-2.0 dependencies from this list or not. I would be in
favour of this if it does not contradict an ASF policy which I miss.

This might even have another advantage. Currently, we're shading in many
modules the Guava and ASM dependency away. Thus their binary data is
contained in nearly every jar we publish on maven. If we wanted to be
consistent with our license policy then we would have to add in each of
these jars a LICENSE/NOTICE file which lists these two dependencies, IMO.

Cheers,
Till
