Subject Re: the case of the maven wrapper
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2019 08:18:29 GMT
FYI I've asked takari to donate the wrapper to the ASF. It is
important but tiny
https://github.com/takari/takari-maven-plugin/issues/18

Meanwhile, we will remove the wrapper from the source distribution as
putting it in the NOTICE file is something off-putting to a few of our
contributors. We can build without the wrapper and it isn't worth
making a commitment to the NOTICE file for what seems not thought
through.

If the enforcement rules loosen back to where we don't need to do
this, or the plugin or a copy of it is donated to the ASF, we'll
likely put it back into the source distribution.
