Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-31) NOTICE/LICENSE and third party products
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 20:59:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-31?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12792895#action_12792895

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-31:

3rd party: A matter of language. I don't know if it's a legal term, if it's fine to use 2nd
party to imply another product from Apache or if that is only subcompanies/contractors. Possibly
it's best to avoid the whole nth party concept and find other language.

I think directory approaches are much more manageable. The everything in the LICENSE file
approach practically guarantees that it's going to have releases with missing items or items
that have since been deleted. This is not withstanding a tool like Maven that builds items.
I'm not against people trying to do it all in the LICENSE file, and for tight projects with
low levels of dependency that would be best, but I don't want 200k license files :)

> 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.
