Subject Good examples of licensing in ASF produced web apps?
Date Fri, 26 May 2017 21:49:46 GMT

I advising a podling on producing a binary release that
includes a Java web app (think war file). I wanted to give
them a taste of what TLPs do so I went to the ones that
I knew were generating war files: Oozie and Ranger.
You know the stuff I'm familiar with in Hadoop ecosystem.

What he discovered may shock you! No, but seriously.

Here's what these projects publish on Maven central:

Each of these WAR files:
   1. bundles all sorts of dependancies -- not just the bits coming
    from the project itself

    2. Neither provides a meanigful LICENSE nor NOTICE files.
    The ones under ./WEB-INF/classes/META-INF are stock ones
    and really don't address the binary dependencies bundling

Have we somehow relaxed the requirements for binary artifacts?
I hope not -- and if not -- what are the good examples of web app
projects doing it right?
