Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-114) License Header - Short Form?
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 20:28:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-114?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13708930#comment-13708930

Dennis E. Hamilton commented on LEGAL-114:
------------------------------------------

@Noah,

I should have said separable.  They are individual files both in any use that can be made
of them, on the SVN, after extraction (tar, zip, any other container format), etc., and I
think of them that way.  It's how they're created, operated with, viewed, etc.

I agree that the possibility of individual repurposing applies to all individual files and
various collections of them in a release.

In any case, with regard to the abbreviated notice on individual files, I think this thread
has converged.  I don't have any idea what Sam will declare the conclusion to be (at least
for the part other than a copyright notice).

My concern about ASF copyright notices does apply to all files in a release.   I concur that
this is not the forum for that topic whatever comments I have made prior to that separation
being made with respect to the abbreviated-notice case.

> 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?
