Subject Re: LICENSE and NOTICE in jar artifacts (was: New copyright header policy)
Date Sun, 06 Aug 2006 12:21:02 GMT
Hi Dave,
The current deadline for the new policy is for releases distributed  
after Sept 1. See http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html. Some  
people are questioning that deadline. However, I'd guess that 1.1.1  
will be our last release under existing policy...
