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

The text of board resolution 6c from May 25, 2006 gets at some of the most
salient issues.

http://www.apache.org/legal/reports.html#2006-05-24

Of course, that resolution was not created out of thin air -- the topic of
copyright notices received a great deal of attention during 2004-2006, and the
policy it established has seen a lot of action in the years since.

Below, I've assembled a list of links to threads on legal-discuss@ over the
years regarding copyright notices.  There are also many threads on board@ and
other private lists, particularly in the run up to the the 2004 and 2006 board
resolutions, but of course I can't link to those.  I have also chosen not to
link to threads about @author tags, though the two issues are closely related.

> 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?
