             Summary: How do we deal with non-ASF licenses in the header of a file?
                 Key: LEGAL-258
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-258
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Andrew Palumbo


I need to bring some c++ header files into the Mahout codebase.  Currently they have an MIT
X11 license at the top eg.:

+  {...}
{code}

I am wondering if I should copy the ASF License above that or if that license needs to be
removed fully?  There are ~50 c++ header files that i will be bringing in.

Should I just leave this as is?  It is my understanding that we should not modify the file
or the license.

Thank You
