Subject Re: POM licensing
Date Sun, 30 Sep 2007 19:18:10 GMT
IMHO this is a real problem.

If there is a difference between the published pom from the project's  
distribution and the mirrored poms, then the mirrored poms should be  
fixed. Stripping the IP notice from a release is a bug plain and  
simple, and wherever this has been done it should be fixed.
