Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Bloodhound 0.1.0 (incubating)
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 14:19:36 GMT
Hello,

Let me add one more point on adding dependencies to source releases.
In addition to license, the dependence contain copyright statements,
e.g. "# Copyright (C)  2005 Christopher Lenz <cmlenz@gmx.de>".

As mentioned here http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html
> If the source file is submitted with a copyright notice included in it, the copyright
owner (or owner's agent) must either:

> move them to the NOTICE file associated with each applicable project release, or
> provide written permission for the ASF to make such removal or relocation of the notices.

This issue cannot be fixed by merging licenses into LICENSE file.
