Subject Legal Header in Unreleased Code
Date Fri, 07 Jun 2019 06:59:17 GMT
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.

Best regards,
