Subject Re: [VOTE] Release UIMA-AS 2.8.1 RC3
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2016 21:13:37 GMT
I agree with Marshall. The NOTICE/LICENSE files should reflect what
is actually inside a JAR/ZIP and non-applicable parts should - if feasible -
be removed.

That said, the LICENSE/NOTICE files e.g. from the Spring distribution are also
usually shooting beyond the goal and make references to third-party code that
may or may not be in a particular artifact... and all artifacts contain the
same notices/licenses.

In the case of Spring, I find it not particularly practicable to figure out
what is relevant and what not.

But here, specific parts seem to be clearly assignable to specific non-packaged JARs,
so it appears to be practicable to be more accurate.
