Hi all.

The new release rules[1] say:

  If A Distribution Contains Code Under Several Licenses, Should It
  Contain Several License Files?

    No - all license information should be contained in the LICENSE
    file.

    When a distribution contains code under several licenses, the
    LICENSE file should contain details of all these licenses. For each
    component which is not Apache licensed, details of the component and
    the license under which the component is distributed should be
    appended to the LICENSE file. 

but does this also apply to bundled binaries (like Batik’s lib/js.jar),
or just included source files (like sources/org/w3c/dom/svg/SVGRect.java
— although I’m going to move across to using the xml-apis-ext.jar from
XML Commons for these files)?  So, should all of Batik’s lib/LICENSE.*
and lib/build/LICENSE.* contents be moved into the one LICENSE file?

Thanks,

Cameron
