Hi Daniel,

Thanks for merging it.

I have opened another pull request(#4). which contains

 1. additional files with license headers

 2. removed the "created by" signature from the source code

Also I am not sure about the license information for gradle wrapper binary located at incubator-freemarker-online-tester/gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.jar.
I have looked in another apache project They have not mentioned
the wrapper jar in any files.

Kindly let me know if we need to add it. I also see no license information associated with
the binary, but the gradle source is bearing the apache license (

As a next step, I would change the package names and the cdn for the javascript files.

Thank you.

Thanks, I will look into it promptly.

Yes, all files must have license information somewhere, except
DISCLAIMER, LICENSE and NOTICE. While it's preferable, the license
header is not mandatory (and for binary files we can't have it
anyway), except for non-binary files that are covered by the usual ASF
ASLv2 license. Regardless, the LICENSE file in the root should give an
overview of all the licenses used, and for the non-ASF licenses show
which files/directories are covered by that license. (Also, ASF
licensed binary files, if we have any, has to be mentioned explicitly,
because they can't have a header.) You can see these in action in the
FreeMarker distros (note that the source and binary distribution has
different LICENSE).

As of the jquery files, we should not store those. We should use a URL or wherever CDN people use nowadays to load JQuery.
Then they won't complicate the LICENSE anymore (and won't burden our
web server).
