Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-552) run RAT on stdcxx 4.2.0
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2007 23:18:43 GMT


Travis Vitek commented on STDCXX-552:

Answer to first question, Instructions for using RAT.

1. download and install java if necessary []
2. download the current RAT jar from [rat-0.5.1.jar]
3. from the command line, execute the jar file [java -jar <path-to-rat.jar> <path-to-source-tree>].

As for the second question, I found the following [from]

What if my project includes its web site within a product distribution? 
With few exceptions, all human-readable Apache-developed files that are included within a
distribution must include the header text. Documentation, including web site documentation
distributed with the release, may include the header text within some form of metadata (such
as HTML comments) or as a header or footer appearing in the visible documentation.

What files in an Apache release do not require a license header? 
A file without any degree of creativity in either its literal elements or its structure is
not protected by copyright law; therefore, such a file does not require a license header.
If in doubt about the extent of the file's creativity, add the license header to the file.

I also found some discussion []
that seems to indicate that the documentation should have the ASL header in there.
