Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2308) All Geronimo JARs should include a NOTICE.txt file in addition to the LICENSE.txt file
Date Thu, 10 Aug 2006 12:17:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2308?page=comments#action_12427183 ] 
            
John Sisson commented on GERONIMO-2308:
---------------------------------------

The issue in 1.1 ( I haven't checked trunk yet) is that although the files may be there, only
the NOTICE.txt file is included in the jar.  It appears the LICENSE.txt file is automatically
included by the JAR plugin.

The NOTICE.txt file can be included in JARs by making the following changes to the project.xml
files:
{noformat}
+        <resources>
+          <resource>
+            <directory>${basedir}</directory>
+              <includes>
+                <include>NOTICE.txt</include>
+              </includes>
+              <targetPath>META-INF</targetPath>
+          </resource>
+        </resources>
{noformat}

> Currently Geronimo jars (e.g. the JARs for each application/module) do not contain a
NOTICE.txt file under the META-INF directory.
> The NOTICE.txt files in modules needs to contain attributions that are relevant for that
module (not Geronimo as a whole).  For example, if the module has a dependency on a library
that has a license requiring attributions upon use of the library (e.g. it has wording "Redistribution
and use of this software" in the library license) then the module using the library should
contain the attribution in the NOTICE.txt file.
> Whilst reviewing attributions, the LICENSE.txt files for the modules and applications
should also be updated to include the relevant licenses.
