Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-855) verify the license situation prior to each release
Date Wed, 08 Nov 2006 06:30:58 GMT
    [ ] 
David Crossley commented on FOR-855:

Part A is still to be done.
Part B is done once, need to do again just prior to release.

Because we let the release slip past the cut-off date of 1 November, we now need to fully
meet the new policy. Main job is to organise the license files for supporting products and
refer to them.

> 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 license headers to source files
and to ensure that the ASF license headers have not been accidently added to external files.
