>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-229
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Dennis E. Hamilton
>
> In this FAQ item,
> “Should a Project Move Non-ASF Copyright Notices from Apache Source Files to the Notice
File?”
>   “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?
