Subject Re: Bundling an AL Font
Date Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:42:35 GMT

Because the ttf file is not text we have concerns about discovering the copyright. Otherwise
I would agree the how to covers it. Does the quote I included not apply to AL non text files?

Hi Folks,

There is confusion in the Apache Flex PMC as to how to handle the bundling
of Google's Open-Sans font in a source package with regard to the LICENSE
and NOTICE file.

Google's Open-Sans font is under AL, so I believe no change to LICENSE are

This passage indicates that we should copy the Copyright from the TTF file
to the NOTICE:
"If the media comes from a third-party source (not contributed directly to
the project), then any copyright notice that is obviously associated with
the media should be copied into the NOTICE file."

However, because there isn't mention in the usual documents [1] and [2] we
are not sure.  Can someone confirm?

2. http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#permissive-deps

I'm confused. http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#alv2-dep precisely addresses
your scenario. If not, please explain.
