Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-136) LICENSE/NOTICE in SVN tags
Date Tue, 22 May 2012 18:07:40 GMT
Marshall Schor created LEGAL-136:

             Summary: LICENSE/NOTICE in SVN tags
                 Key: LEGAL-136
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-136
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Marshall Schor

The UIMA project has a part of its SVN tree called "build" which contains tooling used to
build UIMA; it's not directly released as part of the UIMA project.  However, for the tooling
to work with Maven, we do "releases" of these build components so they can get to Maven Central
for use by anyone trying to build UIMA.  (They are not announced to users, nor are they put
on the Apache "mirror" system for distribution.)

In SVN, the build directory has the standard 3 subdirectories:  trunk, tags, and branches.
 The trunk has subdirectories for each tool, plus a LICENSE/NOTICE pair immediately under
the trunk/. Because we release only specific projects in the trunk from time to time, the
tags directory has those projects that are being released, but does not have a LICENSE/NOTICE

This is similar to how the Maven project is set up.  For instance, Maven's "plugins" directory
in SVN has the trunk, tags, and branches subdirectories, and the trunk has the LICENSE/NOTICE
pair directly as files under trunk/.  But no such LICENSE/NOTICE files are found under the
tags/ directory.

Should this be changed, so that the files under the tags/ have somewhere a LICENSE/NOTICE
that applies for that part of the SVN tree?  (For instance, by copying the LICENSE/NOTICE
file under trunk/ to tags/, if the same LICENSE/NOTICE files apply to all projects in that
part of the tree)
