Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12893) Verify LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2016 22:30:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12893?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15252899#comment-15252899

Andrew Wang commented on HADOOP-12893:

I got both my above patches in, thanks Steve for reviewing.

LEGAL-247 was resolved in favor of merging licenses, meaning we fortunately won't need a zillion
copies of BSD/ALv2/etc. I think the overall goal here is to make our best effort at being
honest about our dependencies. I surveyed a few different Apache projects, and there's no
one true style for LICENSE and NOTICE.

[~ajisakaa] and [~xiaochen] generously volunteered to help with this. I created a Google spreadsheet
that we can use to hopefully auto-generate the LICENSE/NOTICE files later on. Ping me if you
want access to that.

Besides that, I could also use some help to figure out how to copy the LICENSE and NOTICE
into our JAR files. HBase does this (related JIRA HBASE-14085), so we might be able to reuse
their pom work.
