Subject [jira] (MNG-5487) Missing NOTICE and LICENSE files at top level of SCM trees
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2013 08:45:05 GMT


SebbASF commented on MNG-5487:

The SCM urls are published beyond the developer community (and are in poms etc) so must contain
the N&L files in an obvious location.

>                 Key: MNG-5487
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2 & 3
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: SebbASF
>            Priority: Critical
> There should be a NOTICE and LICENSE file in an obvious place in every published source
release. Since the SVN / GIT repos are published, AIUI they should have N & L files.
> I would expect to find N & L files alongside the pom.xml files.
> The only such files I could find were under apache-maven:
> The NOTICE file there is also incorrect; the leading 5 lines should be removed; the NOTICE
file MUST start with something like:
> ===
> Apache Maven
> Copyright 2001-2013 The Apache Software Foundation
> This product includes software developed at
> The Apache Software Foundation (
> ====
> Note also that the correct phrase is "developed at" - *not* "developed by" - the distinction
is important.
