Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-257) Handling attribution statements for test data files and the like
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2016 15:51:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-257?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15411985#comment-15411985

Sean Busbey commented on LEGAL-257:

you could start uploading test-jars to Maven as well. Otherwise, what's complicated about
having appropriate NOTICE in the source artifact and not in the binary artifact(s)?

> Test data files are generally only published in the source archive and potentially the
test jar. They are not usually contained in binary archives nor most of the jars uploaded
to Maven Central.
> Since the NOTICE is only supposed to contain attributions for the actual content of the
bundle in which it is located, that makes packaging complicated.
> Furthermore, downstream consumers who wish to reuse the contents ideally need to know
which files are encumbered.
> Would it be OK to add a conditional atttribution to the NOTICE file, e.g. something like:
> If present, the files listed below[*] are subject to the following notice:
> text-of-notice
> list-of-files
> [*] Or maybe use a separate linked file for the names
