Moaz Reyad edited comment on SINGA-273 at 11/24/16 4:02 AM:
------------------------------------------------------------

Also in this ticket, we are going to fix the following license issues:

1. Doxyfile (https://github.com/apache/incubator-singa/blob/master/doc/Doxyfile) can not have
comments and must have Apache license header. See http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html

> Can we use Doxygen-generated config files?
> As long as the generated comments are removed from the Doxygen-generated files, these
files may be used. 

And see for example: https://github.com/apache/avro/blob/master/lang/c%2B%2B/Doxyfile

2. The Tinydir license can be safely removed from SINGA, because it is already included in
tinydir.h (https://github.com/apache/incubator-singa/blob/master/include/singa/utils/tinydir.h)
.

See https://github.com/cxong/tinydir :
> if you use tinydir you can comply by including tinydir.h

3. The LICENSE file says "SINGA bundles the following under BSD 3-clause license: cmake/Profobuf.cmake"

However, I could not find this file in SINGA. And CMake is not bundled with the project, so
the CMake license can be removed.

>             Project: Singa
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Moaz Reyad
>            Priority: Minor
>
> The project needs a CONTRIBUTIONS.md file. (see https://github.com/blog/1184-contributing-guidelines).
> Also the third party licenses are mixed with the project license and this makes the project
license unclear. We may separate the third party license in the /thirdparty folder and keep
the Apache 2.0 license in the project root folder. 
> Finally, a license badge can be added to the README.md.
