Subject [jira] Issue Comment Edited: (FOR-857) append license files to the top-level LICENSE.txt

-------------------------------------------------------------

For the 0.8 release we added a listing of pathnames for all licenses for supporting products,
into the top-level LICENSE.txt file.

That was reasonably easy with 'find' because we tried to maintain a file naming convention
following the {packageName}.license.txt pattern. Careful, some are uppercase.

That was double-checked by searching for all jar etc packages and ensure that they had a matching
license file.

That process needs to be repeated each at release until we get a better way.

> Evidently the license files for accompanying external products needs to be appended after
the Apache License in the top-level $FORREST_HOME/LICENSE.txt rather than the current situation
with scattered individual license files.
> Perhaps the current discussion on the legal-discuss mailing list will clarify
