Subject Re: CDDL+GPL LICENSE file question
Date Wed, 28 Apr 2010 21:45:20 GMT
Here's my analysis.

The content of the https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/aries/trunk/jpa/jpa-container/src/main/resources/org/apache/aries/jpa/container/parsing/impl/persistence.xsd.rsrc

  file correctly includes the unchanged copyright/notice header.

The file that is included in the LICENSE incorrectly contains only the  
CDDL license and not the CDDL+GPL license as the header stipulates.

The NOTICE file correctly states that this project chooses to license  
the rsrc file under CDDL.
