Subject Copyright notices in NOTICE file
Date Fri, 04 Sep 2009 10:40:16 GMT
Hi all,

Apache Pivot (incubating) contains the following snippet in project's the
NOTICE file:

    Portions of this software were developed at VMware, Inc.
    (http://www.vmware.com/).  Copyright (c) 2009 VMware, Inc.

This is because the code was originally developed at VMware and then
contributed to the ASF and made open source, under the AL 2.0 license.  Per
the policy outlined at http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html, I
believe the notice above to be correct, but during a recent release vote (
http://www.mail-archive.com/general@incubator.apache.org/msg22403.html), the
point got raised that the snippet above fails to mention any associated
license with respect to VMware.

What's the ASF legal policy with respect to this matter?  Is the copyright
notice above correct?

Much appreciated,
