Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-234) Clarify NOTICE additions from other ASF projects
Date Thu, 11 Feb 2016 23:58:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-234?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15143731#comment-15143731
] 

Mark Thomas commented on LEGAL-234:
-----------------------------------

My reading of [1] is that you only need the Accumulo dates.

Wider reading gives a range of opinion on which date(s) should be used and how important it
is (or isn't) to get it exactly right. I'd stick with the instructions from [1] until V.P.
Legal says otherwise.

> In Accumulo, we currently have some contents of the NOTICE file with lines like:
> Apache Accumulo
> Copyright 2011-2016 The Apache Software Foundation
> This product includes the Apache Thrift libthrift JAR file.
> Copyright 2006-2010 The Apache Software Foundation
> I couldn't find clear documentation for these, which essentially amount to duplicate
notices that the software includes ASF-copyrighted code. These aren't "third-party", after
all. In addition, the dates are different, so if these notices should be aggregated in some
way, what dates should be given? The earliest and latest dates?
