Subject Re: the case of the maven wrapper

Hi,

This is what I would do:
a) Use the version with the new header. [1]
b) Add nothing to NOTICE as it ALv2 license but the 3rd party project has no NOTICE file.
c) Add if you want a few lines to LICENSE saying the file is ALv2 licensed and mention the
owner.

It’s unfortunate that the copyright line is “Copyright 2007-present the original author
or authors.” as taken out of context of the 3rd party project that has little meaning, so
I would included something to LICENSE to make it clear where it come form/who the copyright
owner was, but as far as policy is concerned that’s optional.

Thanks,
Justin
