Subject Re: Images in source code.
Date Sat, 03 Jun 2017 00:20:04 GMT
Hi James,

Everything that is not explicitly called out in the top level NOTICE and LICENSE files are
licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.

Adding a file to this directory might mislead people into thinking that they need to perform
more due diligence with other files in other directories.

My advice is to *not* add anything. Let the images be licensed per the terms the top level
LICENSE file.

Craig
