Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-855) verify the license situation prior to each release
Date Wed, 12 Apr 2006 05:23:19 GMT
verify the license situation prior to each release 

         Key: FOR-855
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Bug

  Components: Project administration  
    Reporter: David Crossley
    Priority: Blocker
     Fix For: 0.8-dev

This should be continually happening anyway, but immediately prior to each release we need
to verify that our license situation is in order. This issue should not ever be closed, rather
just move the "Fix for Version" on to the next release.

Here are some of the tasks:

A) Ensure that all supporting libraries have a corresponding license. Basically every jar
file or other external package needs to have a *.license.txt file. Ensure that any license
conditions are met, e.g. for some we must add an entry to NOTICE.txt, while for some others
we must not. Remember to abide by the ASF guidelines (e.g. nothing more restrictive than the
Apache License).

B) Scan the whole trunk repository to add missing ASF copyright headers to source files and
to ensure that the ASF copyright headers have not been accidently added to external files.
