Subject [general] RFC Copyright statements in THIRD_PARTY_NOTICES file
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2007 09:09:35 GMT
Hello,

I have found a few things that needed to be added to the THIRD_PARTY_NOTICES
file recently, and have now come across five different RFCs that we
reference in Harmony.  These specifications all have the same copyright
statment apart from the date (see below for an example).  So I was thinking
that instead of having five or more copies of the copyright statement it
might be possible to combine them and do something like this with the date:
"(1998-2002)" or "(1998, 2000, 2001, 2002)".  Do either of these sound
reasonable or is this something we need to ask the Apache legal people
about?

Thanks,

Sian
