Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-114) License Header - Short Form?
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2011 19:48:39 GMT
License Header - Short Form?
----------------------------

                 Key: LEGAL-114
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-114
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Roger Meier


Hi all

Today the license headers within files does need ~ 15 lines within a file.
This needs lot of space at the top of a file, probably too much if you have a small README
file. 
e.g. http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/thrift/trunk/tutorial/README?view=markup

Is it possible to use a smaller header reflecting the license terms within a source or README
file?
Can we use something like that one or a shorter one?

Should we mention also the License identifier (Apache-2.0) used within spdx standard?
