Subject [jira] [Commented] (INCUBATOR-125) How-to guide for "Assembling LICENSE and NOTICE"
Date Sun, 13 Jan 2013 19:28:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-125?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13552284#comment-13552284
] 

Benson Margulies commented on INCUBATOR-125:
--------------------------------------------

I have some questions / suggestion here.

1. I want to start by noting that ** Apache Releases Are Source Releases **. So I'm somewhat
unclear on how convenience binaries fit in.

2. This document would benefit from a brief definition of what the files are at the top.

I am going to try to stir up assistance from legal.

> While the ASF provides reference documentation for LICENSE and NOTICE,
> confusion persists and existing versions vary widely in quality.
> To address these problems, we should augment the reference documentation with
> a "how-to" guide which provides formulaic instructions for assembling LICENSE
> and NOTICE under common conditions.
> One key feature of this how-to should be a mapping of approved licenses to
> what they require as far as NOTICE.  This mapping will help PMCs determine
> when the licensing information of a dependency contains a "required third
> party notice" which must be added to NOTICE.
> There are at least four possible locations where this how-to might live:
> *   www.apache.org/dev/licensing_howto.html -- probably the best location,
>     considering the intended audience.
> *   www.apache.org/legal/licensing_howto.html -- if legal wants it.
> *   incubator.apache.org/guides/licensing_howto.html -- probably not ideal,
>     because the information applies to TLPs as well as podlings and we have a
>     problem with duplication.
> *   Somewhere on community.apache.org -- in theory.
