Subject Do licenses for javascript files have to be copied to LICENSE?
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2012 10:50:10 GMT
Some javascript files included in Clerezza are MIT licensed and contain a
copyright notice and a reference to a file MIT-LICENSE.txt.

See
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/clerezza/trunk/parent/web.resources.jquery/src/main/resources/org/apache/clerezza/web/resources/jquery/staticweb/jquery.ui.all.js?revision=1233885&view=markupfor
an example.

The notice file of the current svn version contains the sentence

This product includes JQuery and other javascript
files Licensed under the MIT License, see the individual
files for their copyright notice.

As javascript files are not compiled and so visible in their source to the
end user and repeating the MIT license in LICENSE for every copyright
holder of a js-file in the LICENSE file would massively blow that file I
hoped such a sentence in NOTICE would be enough.

What do you think?

Cheers,
Reto
