 ## Frequently Asked Questions ## {#faq}
-### When must Apache projects comply with this policy? ### {#faq-when}
-All releases created and distributed after November 1, 2006 must comply with this policy.
-
-### Why is this change required? ### {#faq-why}
-Since contributors maintain their copyright ownership in the works they submit, it is misleading
to place the ASF
-copyright at the top of each source file.  The previous ASF copyright notice represented
the ASF's ownership in the collective work
-of the entire distribution, but placing it at the top of each source file was causing a lot
of confusion. To avoid this confusion, 
-we are placing all copyright notices in a single file and leaving only the licensing information
within each source file.
-
-#### Is it sufficient just to change the headers on files in trunk and active branches? ####
{#faq-branches}
-Yes.  Only active branches from which releases are cut need to be updated.
-
-#### Should a project move non-ASF copyright notices from Apache source files to the NOTICE
file? #### {#faq-moveothercopyright}
-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.
-
-### What scripts are available to update existing source headers? ### {#faq-update-scripts}
-See <a href="https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/">https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/</a>
-for some examples.  In particular, the following files have been updated to reflect the latest
header requirement:
-
-- `tools/copy2license.pl`, and
-- `relicense/src/perl/{relicense.txt | insert_license.pl | update-AL20.pl}`
-
-**However, be sure to check that these scripts work for your project's code base.** See a

-post on legal-discuss</a> on this topic.
 
 ### Where can I find an example of the NOTICE file that is required to be included in every
ASF release? ### {#faq-examplenotice}
 See the <a href="/licenses/example-NOTICE.txt">httpd project NOTICE example</a>.
