Subject Re: Good examples of licensing in ASF produced web apps?

I'll point out that Ranger graduated the incubator with a less than stellar
release history.  [1] is a good example of such problems

Oozie predates me.

But to answer the original question, no, the requirements shouldn't be any
less stringent on WAR files vs other packages, its a closed package that is
hard to look at and needs to indicate everything within it.  While both of
these projects were incubating, they are no longer incubating and you
should follow up with them directly if you want them to fix their licensing.
