Stefano Bagnara commented on LEGAL-28:

You are right. Thank you for bringing a better example!
My mind is still used to inlcude references to every dependency in the NOTICE: it will take
time to get used to this :-)

> Most m2 based projects creates multiple jars for each module they release and the resulting
jars are published to maven repositories.
> Some of them are:
> jar: the "standard output", contaiinng binary for the project
> source-jar: sources for the classes included in the above jar (for reference, not for
build purpose).
> javadoc-jar: javadocs about the classes included in the jar
> test-jar: tests binary for the jar library
> Most m2 projects use org.apache:apache-jar-resource-bundle:1.4 resource bundle and creates
a very simple LICENSE/NOTICE that is appropriate for the "jar" package, but this file also

the binary classes they document?
> source-jar: is there any special rule or the LICENSE/NOTICE that works for the binary
is also ok for their java sources?
> test-jar: this one seems to deserve a custom LICENSE/NOTICE because it include really
something different from the jar: e.g: most project would probably need at least this in the

> Maybe you already discussed this issue and a policy is already in place, but I didn't
find anything in www.apache.org and also with few searches in legal-discuss archives.
