             Summary: How can we ensure code generated by maven archetypes or code generators
is as freely usable as possible?
                 Key: LEGAL-141
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-141
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Christian Schneider


There is currently a discussion on the camel dev list about maven archetypes from apache camel.

The goal is to provide archetypes that allow our users to use the code as freely as possible.
Ideally to simply have their copyright on the code and use whatever license they like. (If
possible).

So the question is how do we acheive this?

1. Have no license headers and no license file in the generated code. Can we do that? What
would that mean for users?
2. Have no license headers in the files but one license in the top directory. What license
would be suitable?
3. Have license headers in the files and in the top directory. Again the question which license
to use.

>From http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#faq-exceptions
my understanding is that we must include license headers in the source files of the maven
archetypes. (Not the resulting code). Is that correct?
