Subject RE: [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-114) License Header - Short Form?
Date Tue, 09 Jul 2013 02:00:10 GMT
@Noah, 

FWIW, I vote -1 on any short form header that we publish without an ASF copyright notice.

Noah Slater commented on LEGAL-114:
-----------------------------------

Larry, I'm aware that this is what legal-discuss is for. However, this specific issue is LEGAL-114,
and only relates to a shorter version of our existing boilerplate. There are other threads,
and other JIRA tickets that cover whether we should include copyright notices. This is not
the appropriate place for that discussion.

> 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?
