Subject ASF Board Summary for February 18, 2004
Date Mon, 23 Feb 2004 21:02:41 GMT
I think we did almost everything already. Except, that we should put the
license also in .properties and .xml. Or did I misunderstood the message?


Another question is, if we should remove all @author tags from our sources.

+1, what do you think?

Done, as far as I know.

 >>   - All releases made after March 1 must use the new Apache License 2.0.
 >>     Please note that this applies to *all* releases, even maintenance
 >>     releases where the original went out under the 1.1 license.

Done, see above.

 >>   - each and every file must have exactly *one* Copyright line,

See above.

See above.

 >>     with the overall PMC or release rather than individual files.

Okay, we should do something like this.
