Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-129) conflicting license templates are confusing
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 17:39:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-129?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13230350#comment-13230350

Carol Frampton commented on LEGAL-129:

I see that http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0 seems to be the basis for the top-level
LICENSE file in each project.

Considering the extensive discussion that went on in this thread about the ESME project, http://markmail.org/message/r2ewtoq4yyvwbfmr,
about not leaving copyrights in source files and moving the copyrights to the NOTICE file
I am very surprised that the copyright template that every project publishes includes this
a line for a non-Apache copyright in the template.

Am I totally misunderstanding this the context of where this Apache license template should
be used?

> The license template here, http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html, differs from
the template here, http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.html#apply.
> The later includes this line at the top while the former does not.
>    Copyright [yyyy] [name of copyright owner]
> http://incubator.apache.org/flex/license.html also includes the copyright in the Appendix.
> I assume http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html is correct and the other two pages
are wrong and should be corrected.
