Subject Re: SUN PROPRIETARY/CONFIDENTIAL code in myfaces
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2007 01:31:29 GMT
I've been working with Sun to get the appropriate legal notices  
changed in the relevant files: the xsd for faces 1.2 and the dtd for  
faces 1.0 and 1.1.

Please take a look at the newly updated files at:


The notices in these files should be self-explanatory. The files in  
the faces repository should be refreshed with the latest versions  
from the web. The NOTICE file in the distribution should be updated  
to reflect the CDDL license (we don't want the GPL license option do  

If there are other similar cases, please let me know and I'll try to  
get them updated as well.
