Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2112) Place required attrtibutions in the NOTICES.txt file or a license included in the LICENSE.txt file
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 13:12:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2112?page=comments#action_12416190 ] 

Kevan Miller commented on GERONIMO-2112:
----------------------------------------

Guillaume,
Please note the following paragraph from the url you provided:

"If the distribution also contains source files not owned by the ASF, such as third-party
libraries, then be sure to leave their licenses intact. In some cases, you may want to ask
the author(s) of third-party code to relicense it under the 2.0 license, since that will simplify
the distribution. Otherwise, you should append their license(s) to the LICENSE file at the
top of the distribution, or at least put a pointer in the LICENSE file to the third-party
license. In all cases, be sure to obey the licensing constraints of the original author. If
that is not possible, then do not redistribute their work."

Also, note http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/trunk/LICENSE as a reference. Let me
know if you still think the LICENSE.txt file is incorrect...
