Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-62) What are the required 3rd party notices that should go in the NOTICE file?

ant elder commented on LEGAL-62:
--------------------------------

Dennis, I think what you're talking about is covered by the last line at http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice
which says "The NOTICE file may also include copyright notices moved from source files submitted
to the ASF.". No change to that so those type of copyright statements may still be in the
NOTICE file.

> 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.
