Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-31) NOTICE/LICENSE and third party products
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 07:21:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-31?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12792805#action_12792805

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-31:

Agreed with Sebb. Which represents a slight shift of position for me.

The LICENSE file should be the starting point for a user looking at the distribution. I am
however happy with it containing something like the phrase:

"Other 3rd party products may exist within the following locations. Licensing of those products
is clearly marked in the directory: 


The NOTICE file is a little bit of a challenge here. It would also need to say:

"The LICENSE file indicates that 3rd party products may exist in various parts of this distribution.
See the LICENSE file and the licensing of these 3rd party products for attribution requirements.


One concern is whether it's okay for 3rd party to be another ASF product. 3rd party to the
ASF or 3rd party to this product. Might need a language tweak there.

> 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.
