Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-175) Distribute sample files from www.ferc.gov for unit tests
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2013 09:53:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13727519#comment-13727519

Sebb commented on LEGAL-175:
----------------------------

If the LICENSE file is not appropriate, that does not necessarily mean that the NOTICE file
has to be used.

NOTICE files are effectively viral; their contents have to be passed on by consumers.
So they should only contain *required* content.

I'm not convinced that it's necessary to add the attribution to the NOTICE file.
But if it really is necessary, then it should be made clear that only the test code is thus
encumbered.
This also means different NOTICE files for the main and test jars, as only the test jar would
contain the source, and NOTICE files must only relate to what they actually contain.
