Subject Re: License Question: web-facesconfig.dtd for MyFaces Impl 1.2 Jar
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2008 23:53:19 GMT
Hi Barb,

they will not reflect the CDDL - there has been a long discussion on
this on legal, and the outcome was that all dtd-files have been
manually retyped by an Apache committer, and are now under
ASL-license. So the notice.txt will not be amended to reflect the
CDDL, but no reference at all for these dtds. Expect the change in the
next release.

regards,

Martin
