Subject [jira] [Commented] (INCUBATOR-125) How-to guide for "Assembling LICENSE and NOTICE"
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 01:48:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-125?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13561341#comment-13561341
] 

Marvin Humphrey commented on INCUBATOR-125:
-------------------------------------------

The page has now been published:

  http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html

I chose www.apache.org/dev rather than the Incubator or Legal sites because
Legal did not express a desire to own the document and the Incubator docs
should in general be shrunk down and should point at the main dev site more
often.

Please review.  Once we have lazy consensus, I'll add a link from the dev
index page.

> 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.
