Subject [jira] Closed: (LEGAL-62) What are the required 3rd party notices that should go in the NOTICE file?
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 07:25:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-62?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-62.
------------------------------

    Resolution: Duplicate

Resolving this as I think it is effectively a duplicate of LEGAL-59 and I'd rather see the
discussion there.

The short answer is:

"Required notices depend on the license in question. "

As it is, I believe that the vast majority of these can be satisfied by the 3rd party license
file being in the product rather than having developers trying to determine how to interpret
the attribution clauses of each product. The only use case I know of that doesn't fit this
are advertising clauses, and those are few and far between.

> The ASF doc on the NOTICE file states:
> 2. The remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for required third-party notices. The
NOTICE file may also include copyright notices moved from source files submitted to the ASF.
> See: http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice
> I understand the part about "copyright notices moved from source files" but what are
required third-party notices?
> After participating in many Incubator poddling release reviews I've seen poddlings asked
to do release respins because they've left stuff out and also to respin for including text
that is said shouldn't be included. There doesn't seem to be much common understanding on
what these notices are, and like LEGAL-31 this is a constant point of contention at the Incubator
so it would be really helpful to have some clarification.
