Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-860) Add source-style LICENSE and NOTICE files at "root"s of UIMA
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2009 13:03:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-860?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12738960#action_12738960

Thilo Goetz commented on UIMA-860:

This is still being debated on legal-discuss, and I don't see consensus in the immediate future.
 Furthermore, the sandbox projects are all pretty much independent of each other, so really
form svn roots of their own.  Since they all (or at least the ones I checked) have LICENSE
and NOTICE files in their top level directory, I think we're good.  UIMA-CPP is a different
story, I haven't checked.

> The legal wiki seems to be converging to a concensus around having LICENSE and NOTICE
files at the "root" of projects in SVN (underneath "trunk").  There was a lot of discussion
about this from our previous release attempt.
> There are multiple kinds of LICENSE and NOTICE files - those for our "source" distributions
(which are pretty simple), and those for our binary ones (which, because these sometimes include
other projects, have more complex versions - see http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/uima/sandbox/trunk/uima-as/uima-as-distr/src/main/readme
for instance).
> To conform to this emerging Apache convention, put the "source" style of licenses beneath
the "trunk" directory in our SVN (we have at least 2 of these - one for the main branch, and
one for the sandbox.)   Also put at top level (the level containing the projects) in uima-as
- there is a "collection" directory for all the uima-as projects.
