Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-5677) [Java] update the LICENSE and NOTICE files in various release artifacts
Date Sun, 13 Apr 2014 14:11:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5677?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13967828#comment-13967828

ASF subversion and git services commented on QPID-5677:

Commit 1586991 from robbie@apache.org in branch 'qpid/branches/0.28'
[ https://svn.apache.org/r1586991 ]

QPID-5677: separate and update the LICENCE and NOTICE file used for source release, jar files,
and the ugly 'java binary release' tar, and use the files added for the maven assemblies for
the individual component binary releases, allowing us to ensure they have appropriately tailored
information to match their content

merge trunk r1586023 (coming later: branch-specific updates to this and

> We currently ship a number of different artifacts for the Java components, such as the
project-wide source release, a 'java release' binary, and individual binary archives for e.g.
the clients and broker. These all contain LICENSE and NOTICE files. The jar files in those
binary archives also count as distributions that themselves contain LICENSE and NOTICE files.
This was all further complicated by us previously having jar files in the repository as part
of the build process for some time (though removed a while ago).
> During the work on QPID-5048 and updating how the various artifacts are created, and
a lot of re-reading https://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html, it has become apparent
that a number of the current artifacts contain extraneous information (particularly the source
release and jar files, which often speak to things they do not contain), and some don't contain
everything they should.
> This JIRA will serve to add additional distribution-specific LICENSE and NOTICE files,
as well as use those already added in QPID-5048, and update the way we package ensure the
appropriate information is included in each package depending on its particular contents.
