Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-229) Incorrect Wording at http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#faq ?
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2015 18:09:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-229?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15022618#comment-15022618

Alex Harui commented on LEGAL-229:

Just a guess, but when I've read that part in the past, I just assumed that there was a different
recommended header in the AL 1.1 days.  IMO, changing the rest of the header text is independent
of the copyright lines in the header.

> “Should a Project Move Non-ASF Copyright Notices from Apache Source Files to the Notice
>   “No.  If the copyright owner is still involved with the project, 
>    they should move the notice themselves or permit us to do so.
>    If the owner cannot be found, the copyright notice should be
>    left as is, but the new licensing header should be added or
>    substituted for any existing Apache [sic] license header.” 
> This statement makes no sense if there is any existing Apache license header.  The topic
is about Non-ASF Copyright Notices.
> Or is this inapplicable to the case of imported code under an SGA where there are non-ASF
copyright and non-Apache license notices?
