Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-257) Handling attribution statements for test data files and the like
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2016 21:24:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-257?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15501661#comment-15501661

Sebb commented on LEGAL-257:
----------------------------

Yes.
It's not the fact that the test jars are missing from Maven, it's that the test files are
not contained in some of the jars which are already uploaded to Maven. And it's not appropriate
to add the test files to those jars.

> 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
