Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6) Apache source headers in callback-docs
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2012 16:16:17 GMT


Jukka Zitting commented on CB-6:

To answer your question from above: Both the scripts and the Markdown files should have source
headers. The final HTML pages should too, but that's less important since few people will
be modifying those files.

The relevant sections from the source header policy page are:

Q: Does this policy apply to documentation files included in a release?
A: Yes.

Q: What if my project includes its web site within a product distribution?
A: With few exceptions, all human-readable Apache-developed files that are included within
a distribution must include the header text. Documentation, including web site documentation
distributed with the release, may include the header text within some form of metadata (such
as HTML comments) or as a header or footer appearing in the visible documentation.

Q: What files in an Apache release do not require a license header?
A: A file without any degree of creativity in either its literal elements or its structure
is not protected by copyright law; therefore, such a file does not require a license header.
If in doubt about the extent of the file's creativity, add the license header to the file.
