Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Drill 0.6.0-incubating release
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 18:45:50 GMT
The standard practice has been drifting in incubator-land.

When I brought this up previously, I was told a few things,

1) the notices required by BSD like licenses apparently should appear in
the LICENSE file.

2) notices in the source distribution only need to include things that are
included in the source distro

3) notices in the binary distribution should include the things included in
the binary distro (clearly many more than in the source distro)

4) maven references from a pom do not invoke a requirement for notices in
the source distro.


If you are talking about the source distribution, this isn't a problem.

If you are talking about notices that actually are in the LICENSE file
instead of the NOTICE file, this isn't a problem.

If you are saying that the notices aren't in the LICENSE file in the binary
distro, there is a huge problem (partly because I looked there and found

My guess is that your next comment and mine as well is that it is really
hard to keep track of these requirements as they shift over time.
