Subject Re: Listing Apache-2.0 dependencies in LICENSE file
Date Sun, 14 Jun 2015 18:01:59 GMT
Hi Till,

There are several discussions about LICENSE for dependencies happening
at the same time so I would like to make sure we merge them into a
decision in dev@ list.

Is this related to PR https://github.com/apache/flink/pull/830 for
updating LICENSE and NOTCE of Flink dependencies?

- Henry
