Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-10666) Remove Copyright /d/d/d/d Apache Software Foundation from the source files license header
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2014 23:01:03 GMT
Henry Saputra created HADOOP-10666:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Remove Copyright /d/d/d/d Apache Software Foundation from the source
files license header
                 Key: HADOOP-10666
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10666
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: documentation
    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
            Reporter: Henry Saputra
            Priority: Minor


Some of the files have "Copyright 2011 Apache Software Foundation" in the license header comment.

This is not the right license header per ASF rule [1]

>From the ASF header rule [1] :
"Source File Headers for Code Developed at the ASF"
"This section refers only to works submitted directly to the ASF by the copyright owner or
owner's agent."

Seems like the one without Copyright notice is used for software developed directly by ASF
which Apache Hadoop is.

When it was under external organization it does need to use the one from ASF 2.0 license [2]
which requires Copyright included.
