Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-235) How to specify ASF copyright in a PDF doc
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2016 21:18:18 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created LEGAL-235:

             Summary: How to specify ASF copyright in a PDF doc
                 Key: LEGAL-235
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-235
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs

The Accumulo project distributes a (binary) PDF and an (human-readable, but effectively binary,
since it's generated) HTML user manual generated from source code in the project. These are
supplemental documentation that are sometimes distributed separately (published on their own
to Maven Central, for example) from other project artifacts.

The source files which generates the documentation all have appropriate ASF license headers,
and the contents of the manuals are entirely ASF IP, and don't contain third-party IP.

What additional steps should we take to ensure any necessary copyright/attribution/license
information is presented on these generated documents before distribution?

Should we explicitly put the contents of the license header, and a copyright statement for
the ASF in the body of the manual? For example, after the title page, or at the end? If an
embedded comment is sufficient, that would work for the HTML docs, but not the PDF (at least,
I don't know how to embed such metadata into a PDF).
