Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-221) LICENSE and NOTICE problems in Kafka 0.7
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 09:41:40 GMT


ant elder commented on KAFKA-221:

I've tried to have a look but i don't have git and can't work out what SVN revision that patch
is against so its hard for me to tell what the resultant files will look like, would you be
able to attach the complete license and notice files here?

What is the reasoning behind keeping the NOTICE file entries for LinkedIn, zkclient and sbt?
For example, looking at the sbt license at
if you include that complete license text in the Kafka LICENSE file then I don't think there
is a need to mention sbt in the Kafka NOTICE.

> The source LICENSE file for Kafka is incomplete. The LICENSE file needs to accurately
reflect the Kafka source and included artifacts.
> Similarly, the NOTICE file is likely to be missing information. I'll attach a file with
some information that I created. It's incomplete and will need additional work...
