Subject [jira] [Commented] (JAMES-1269) Create a correct NOTICE/LICENSE files for the spring binary artifact (currently having bad contents)
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 11:13:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1269?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13049125#comment-13049125

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on JAMES-1269:
----------------------------------------------

I would prefer a separate tool to check compliance but IMHO a tool that just assembled LICENSE
and NOTICE documents correctly based on the actual contents would be very useful and not difficult
to write. Anyone want to help me?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1269
>             Project: JAMES Server
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 3.0-M2
>            Reporter: Stefano Bagnara
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: 3.0-beta1

> Our first attempt to release beta1 didn't include a LICENSE/NOTICE at all.
> Current trunk includes a plain LICENSE/NOTICE tuple with just ASF "references".
> We have to reintroduce complete LICENSE/NOTICE files in the binary distribution as we
include third party dependencies in that package.
> Subtask: we have to make sure we correctly document the way JSW artifacts are included
and what their license is (and the fact that appassembler doesn't include licensing informations
about itself and the JSW content they took from the tanuki wrapper).
> I uploaded the tanuki wrapper version 3.2.3 I obtained under the MIT license here:
> http://people.apache.org/~bago/third-party/
> I compared the content of "my" wrapper with the content in the "org\codehaus\mojo\appassembler\daemon\jsw"
folder inside the org.codehaus.mojo/appassembler-maven-plugin-1.0.jar maven plugin (the files
our build process includes in the binary) and they are bitwise identical.
> So we have to review the lib folder from the current trunk and make sure we correclty
identify LICENSE/NOTICE requirement for them (for sure we have to add the MIT licensing for
the tanuki wrapper code we include, but probably we have other artifacts to be attributed
to the copyright holders and the respective licenses under we redistribute them).
