unreleased code may still be in a publicly visible GitHub master branch. After all, this is
OPEN source.

But IANAL, so only my $0,02.

Subject: Legal Header in Unreleased Code

Hi all, 

Is it required to have the 'legal header' (as shown below) in unreleased, but published code?

Some Members say an ASF project that does not release code does not have to have the section
in their code file.
