Subject Re: License/Notice/Disclaimer file location in tree and modifcations of License headers in contributed files
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2012 11:31:45 GMT
There is still one open questions here, let me summarize it again:

OCAD[1] contributed files via JIRA[2] to the ASF,
Those files already had a license header (GPL) example: [3].

What is the correct way to handle that?
Replace license header with Apache license header and put some credits to
initial contributors in Readme ?

Thanks!
Sebastian
