Subject Q: Notices in Code
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2011 19:18:25 GMT

Simple version of the question: Is your putting notices on everything your personal practice
or is it a requirement that this be done with all textual artifacts where notices are possible?

 - Dennis


I looked over the ooo/trunk/tools/dev/ repository and noticed that you put Apache notices
on all of your files, including .txt and .sh.

I have been setting up forensic tools on a different repository that I happen to be the sole
committer for, and I wanted to stage things so that they could be cleanly transferred/granted
to Apache if that became desirable at some point.  I am being careful with category A third-party
code, not using any other kind, and putting everything else and the combined works under an
Apache license.

Is it a rigorous requirement to put Apache notices on all textual files that I am placing
under the Apache license?  (I have test data that, by its nature, I can't do that with, but
I can do so on the containers and descriptive texts about that data.)
