> I wrote a DKIM library (email authentication) in Java for the James
> project. Now I was expanding the test cases and found that the perl
> library named "Mail-DKIM" includes a good corpus of signed messages
> (http://search.cpan.org/dist/Mail-DKIM/). I'd like to add them "as is"
> in our test/resources folder so that they can be processed by a java
> tester class as part of the default tests.
> The library itself claims the license is the same of Perl 5.8.6, so it
> is the Artistic License 1.0:
> http://www.opensource.org/licenses/artistic-license-1.0.php
> From my understanding there should be no harm in redistributing this
> kind of "data" (they are email messages, mime messages, and not some
> language code) in apache packages, but I didn't find a clear answer on
> the website.
> So:
> 1) Are we allowed to include them in our src/test/resources folder
> (and in derivate distributed packages)?
> 2) If "yes": where am I supposed to write their "origin"/"license"?
> (NOTICE/LICENSE/README? In the root of cvs or the src/test/resources
> folder where I'll copy them?).
> PS: I open this jira issue because it seems my messages do not pass through the legal-discuss
list anymore (investigating on this).
