Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6414) Add more Apache license header patterns to skip downloading Apache license
Date Sun, 16 Sep 2018 07:55:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6414?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16616625#comment-16616625
] 

Hervé Boutemy commented on MNG-6414:
------------------------------------

notice: I don't know if we can display a warning when a value is found that is not ideal,
like "Apache Public License 2.0"
Being tolerant in our build is good, but telling about issues that original libraries should
fix would be good also: not a blocker, just an improvement idea if feasible

> While preparing Maven distribution, maven-remote-resources-plugin try to download licenses
for all dependencies that are not Apache licensed (see resulting {{lib/*.license}} in Maven
binary distribution, since Maven 3.2.1 MNG-5494).
> License file is not downloaded only when project/license/name is strictly equal to "The Apache Software License, Version 2.0":
this is too restrictive, as we see Apache license downloaded many times from https://www.apache.org/
(causing some issues with https: MNG-6358). 
> After debugging these cases, additional patterns for Apache license exist and need to
be added to exception list in {{appended-resources/META-INF/LICENSE.vm}}:
>  - "Apache License, Version 2.0"
>  - "The Apache Software License, Version 2.0"
>  - "ASLv2"
>  - "Apache Public License 2.0
