Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-175) Distribute sample files from www.ferc.gov for unit tests
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2013 04:01:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13727294#comment-13727294

Craig L Russell commented on LEGAL-175:
---------------------------------------

Sebb,

There is no LICENSE, so adding text to LICENSE seems inappropriate.

I'd like to hear from a legal person on the use of government provided files that have neither
copyright nor license.

But I still think it's reasonable to annotate the lack of copyright and license in NOTICE.
