Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-114) License Header - Short Form?

Marvin Humphrey commented on LEGAL-114:
---------------------------------------

> Marvin, do you have a summary of the rationale? 

If I provide one on-list, that would just be an invitation to replay an
incredibly painful discussion.  I'll send you some links via private email
instead.

For what it's worth, if we could decouple the issue of the short-form header
from the issue of copyright notification -- i.e. if we could agree that since
we don't need one in the long-form header we don't need one in the short-form
header either -- this issue could be resolved.

> 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?
