Thank you - already fixed in master. Getting smarter every day..

Always appreciated - thanks!

the engine first) you may want to mention that in README if it’s not already

Of course once these are in Maven Central it won't be a big blocker in the end.

However I agree the build order should be more explicit, so I have
added for the future:

https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-engine#prerequisites
https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-common-activities#prerequisites
https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-commandline#prerequisites

(Note that the linked download pages for engine/common-activities are
only on http:// taverna.staging.apache.org/ for now)

I guess you mean this section?

This is how it was suggested to us by our mentors; but we're open for
improvements - this text is the same across our NOTICEs (however the
start-year might vary depending on the code base).

Semantically I guess the software is not based on a copyright.. :)

How about:

?

Bah - thanks. Updated. :)

Done - https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAVERNA-986

Oops! Well spotted. It is Public Domain, so there is obviously no
requirement to propagate any license,

But is "Public Domain" valid outside US?  Should we append ASF headers
on it? (That should be allowed if it's PD.. at least if that is done
by an USAnian)


Anyway, for information purposes I've added to top-level LICENSE
---------------------------------------------------------
./taverna-interaction-activity/src/main/resources/json2.js
is Public Domain, see https://github.com/douglascrockford/JSON-js/
and http://www.json.org/js.html
-------------------------------------------------------

Done. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAVERNA-985

(Also as you suggested I put it in META-INF/LICENSE rather than META-INF/NOTICE)
