Hi,

Even though this practise seems quite common in Apache projects? Which is why I bought this
up as the advice seems counter the what is in common practice.

 For example taking the first few 1/2 dozen projects off our github mirrors:

Accumullo LICENSE has copyright for BSD (line 226).
https://github.com/apache/accumulo/blob/master/LICENSE

Clouldstack LICENCE has copyright for MIT (lines 186 + 280 + 311 + 405 + 431 + 457 + 483 +
510 + 545 + more), BSD (lines 348) and Apache (lines 221 + 267 + 273 + 342 + 653 + 659):
https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/blob/master/LICENSE

Hive - assorted licenses with copyright (lines 265, 296, 327, 360, 386, 421, 437, 464)
https://github.com/apache/hive/blob/trunk/LICENSE

Archiva - likewise including Apache (line 373)
https://github.com/apache/archiva/blob/master/LICENSE

Subversion - likewise including Apache (line 232)
https://github.com/apache/subversion/blob/trunk/LICENSE

That's 5 out of  the 7 projects I looked at, of the others:
- Cassandra places licenses in a libs directory which seems a little unusual and too numerous
to check every one.
- bllodhound bundles no software

And I know I've seen other Apache projects that do exactly the same.

Are you saying all these projects above have incorrect LICENSE files?

Thanks,
Justin
