Subject Re: [VOTE] Approve release CXF 2.0.4-incubator
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2008 13:53:44 GMT
There are several problems with the NOTICE and LICENSE files.

The NOTICE file should only pertain to artefacts actually included in
distribution; it should not have any details of transitive
dependencies. So the "/uses" text should be removed.

The line

This product includes/uses software(s) developed by 'an unknown organization'

is rather unhelpful; there are 3 organisations involved and the NOTICE
should mention these separately and by their proper names.

There are also multiple additional mentions of 'Apache Software
Foundation'; some of these give http://jakarta.apache.org/ as the ASF
web address, which is clearly wrong. None of the additional mentions
should be present - they just make the file difficult to read.

The LICENSE file needs to contain copies of all the 3rd party
licenses, or at least pointers to them, see:

http://www.apache.org/dev/apply-license.html#new

It should list the exact jars to which the 3rd party licenses apply, e.g.

jdom-1.0.jar - see licenses/jdom.txt

Having the version number is important as the license may change for
different versions.
