Subject Status update for Apache HAWQ release
Date Tue, 16 May 2017 14:37:17 GMT
Hi All,

Per feedback from Roman for Apache HAWQ binary release
during IPMC voting, there is lack of LICENSE, NOTICE, and DISCLAIMER files
for the binary package.

With the help from Roman, Anthony, Ed, and Radar, I am currently creating
these files so that we can proceed with the release.

Please find below proposal to prepare the contents of LICENSE, NOTICE, and
DISCLAIMER and feel free to share your feedback.

*Step 1: Download Apache HAWQ binary release package.*
wget https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/incubator/hawq/

*Step 2: Uncompress the tarball to get the rpm packages for components
including Apache HAWQ core, Ranger, and PXF.*
*$ tar -xzvf apache-hawq-rpm-; tree
*├── apache-hawq-*
*├── apache-tomcat-7.0.62-el6.noarch.rpm*
*├── hawq-ranger-plugin-*
*├── pxf-*
*├── pxf-hbase-*
*├── pxf-hdfs-*
*├── pxf-hive-*
*├── pxf-jdbc-*
*├── pxf-json-*
*└── pxf-service-*

*Step 3: Extract the contents of the each rpm package. Take Ranger for
*$ mkdir **hawq-ranger-plugin-; cd *
*$ rpm2cpio ../hawq-ranger-plugin- | cpio

*Step 4: Search the potential dependencies. Take Ranger for example again.*
*$ find . \( -name "*.a" -o -name "*.so" -o -name "*.jar" -o -name "*.war"


*Step 5: For each dependency, identify its licence.*
*Sometimes, there are multiple dependencies bundled in single package,
i.e., single jar file with multiple dependencies. Need to list them all.*

Take *postgresql-9.1-901-1.jdbc4.jar* for example, we can search it in
internet to get https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/postgresql/
postgresql/9.1-901-1.jdbc4. Then we get its license information below: BSD
with home page https://jdbc.postgresql.org and download page

Similarly, we can get license information for activation-1.1.jar at
https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/javax.activation/activation/1.1 as
below: CDDL 1.0 with home page http://java.sun.com/
products/javabeans/jaf/index.jsp and download page http://central.maven.org/

*Step 6: Summarize all the licenses and compose LICENSE, NOTICE, and
DISCLAIMER files for Apache HAWQ binary release.*

Best regards,
Ruilong Huo
