Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-31) NOTICE/LICENSE and third party products
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2009 09:02:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-31?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12747316#action_12747316

J Aaron Farr commented on LEGAL-31:

I agree with Jukka that a prominent listing of all licenses should be encourages, if not required.

They definitely shouldn't be in the NOTICE file.

They could be stuffed in the LICENSE file, but I can appreciate ant elder's concerns about
readability.  Moreover just appending to the LICENSE file doesn't help as we need to clarify
which files are under what license.  Perhaps a compromise is a header in the LICENSE file
which lists the location to all other licenses and identifies what code that license covers.
 The header could end with "All other material is licensed under the following..."  or something
like that.

If nothing else, the Incubator PMC should end up with a consistent policy for all podlings.

> Legal Affairs still doesn't have consensus about whether the LICENSE/NOTICE for an ASF
release should contain links to (or include) LICENSEs/NOTICEs of 3rd party products included
within the release. In any case the LICENSE for the 3rd party product has to be placed near
the product or appended to the main LICENSE file and for some licenses attribution in the
main NOTICE is madatory.
