             Summary: Do we need to include 3rd party licenses verbatim in our source distributions
                 Key: LEGAL-226
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-226
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


The Spark developer community is discussing what kind of license information should be included
in Apache source distributions. The discussion began on http://apache-spark-developers-list.1001551.n3.nabble.com/VOTE-Release-Apache-Spark-1-5-1-RC1-td14310.html
and was moved to http://apache-spark-developers-list.1001551.n3.nabble.com/Discuss-NOTICE-file-for-transitive-quot-NOTICE-quot-s-td14326.html

The two opinions seem to be:

1) It is sufficient for the NOTICE file to refer to licenses which are posted on 3rd party
websites.

2) The source distro needs to bundle verbatim copies of 3rd party licenses as is done, for
instance, by the THIRDPARTYLICENSEREADME.txt in the JDK.

We would appreciate any guidance you can give us.

Thanks,
-Rick
