Subject RE: Does CC-SA3.0 require mention in NOTICE
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:03:53 GMT
Short Answer: Attribution is required by CC-SA.  And it is unclear why CC-SA is allowed at
all in an ASF project release.


Share-Alike is equivalent to (at least weak) Copy-Left and I would think that it cannot be
included or depended upon in an Apache project release at all.

In fact, it is peculiar that there is this provision,

when there is also this indication with regard to Creative Commons Attribution (CC-By) licenses:

There is no CC-SA that is *only* Share-Alike.  The actual license is an Attribution-ShareAlike.
 It is *more* restrictive than CC-By, and CC-SA has attribution requirements.  It is convenient
to refer to it as CC-SA, but the Attribution requirements are there, nonetheless.

The link [1] makes this abundantly clear.
