Subject [jira] Commented: (ZOOKEEPER-521) include autotools (autoconf/automake) in NOTICE file
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2009 21:29:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-521?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12752752#action_12752752
] 

Doug Cutting commented on ZOOKEEPER-521:
----------------------------------------

This is not required.  Many Apache projects (e.g., HTTPD) have long included autoconf-generated
configure scripts in their releases and none to my knowledge include anything in the NOTICE
file.  If someone feels this policy is incorrect or needs clarificaiton then they should take
it up on legal-discuss@a.o, not on zookeeper-dev@h.a.o.

> The toplevel notice file should be updated to credit the gnu autotools project, something
like:
> This project includes scripts generated by GNU autotools (autoconf/automake/etc...).
> These files are released under the Apache license.
> This is permissible under the license clarification at:
>     http://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/Manuals/autoconf-2.53/html_node/Distributing.html#Distributing
> we should also take the opportunity to adjust the existing text as detailed here:
