Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12893) Verify LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt

Andrew Wang commented on HADOOP-12893:
--------------------------------------

Thanks Sean, that's the page I hadn't read yet :) I really wish the Licensing HOWTO gave examples
for how this applies to a typical Java project. It talks a lot about source releases, which
are the least common way for people to consume our artifacts. For a long time we were also
under the impression that we could just provide the binary artifacts as a "convenience" while
the source tarball was the only "official" release artifact. Now we know that's definitely
not okay.

I'm going to fix up the patch based on my above comments. So far no one has raised any objections
on the dev list, so we'll have the "good faith" level of compliance to unblock the releases.
I'll also attempt the pom work for generating specific L&Ns, but no promises.
