Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-2138) NOTICE file does not have standard content
Date Mon, 17 Jun 2019 16:05:00 GMT


Sebb commented on ROL-2138:

I only see one NOTICE and one LICENSE file.
Is it intended for the source release or the binary release?

AIUI the binary release includes some bundled dependencies, and will therefore have a different
Some (but not all) licenses require additional attribution in the NOTICE file; this may mean
that the NOTICE file is different for source and binary.

You need to identify all the licences for additional source code that is included in the source
Each license must be present in the LICENSE file (or in a separate file linked from it).
If -- and only if -- the license requires additional attribution, this must be added to the
NOTICE file.

Likewise for the binary bundle. In that case the LICENSE file must identify the versions of
the 3rd party jars that are included, along with the related license. This is because the
license may change between versions.
