Subject [jira] [Updated] (KAFKA-221) LICENSE and NOTICE problems in Kafka 0.7
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2011 21:39:40 GMT


Jakob Homan updated KAFKA-221:

    Attachment: KAFKA-221-2.patch

OK, updated based on comments from Ant and the other thread.  NOTICE (new version:
only contains the Apache notice based on:
* as Ant mentioned, the sbt license is included in full in LICENSE so not necessary in NOTICE
* zkclient is Apache 2.0 licensed (category A), so no need to mention it in LICENSE
New LICENSE (new version:
* Removed Scala license, since we're not distributing the Scala runtime (it's pulled in via
* Has sbt license since it is being included and requires inclusion (although I still don't
understand why including it in its jar isn't enough to satisfy this condition)
* Doesn't include anything for zkclient since it's ASL2.0
* Doesn't include anything for the pig stuff since they're sister ASF projects.

I think this is enough for a source release.

> 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...
