Ralf commented on NUTCH-2290:
-----------------------------

I've got an Ivy.xml with updated depencies, as far up as possible without breaking the compile,
don't know about the rest.... so far it seemed to work on a few trial runs with the crawl
script

> The files LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt were last edited 5 years ago and should be updated
to include all licenses of dependencies (and their dependencies) in accordance to [Assembling
LICENSE and NOTICE HOWTO|http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html]:
> # check for missing or obsolete licenses due to added or removed dependencies
> # update year in NOTICE.txt -- should be a range according to the licensing HOWTO
> # bundled libraries are referenced with path and version number, e.g {{lib/icu4j-4_0_1.jar}}.
This would require to update the LICENSE.txt with every dependency upgrade. A more generic
reference ("ICU4J") would be easier to maintain but the HOWTO requires to "specify the version
of the dependency as licenses are sometimes changed".
> # try to reduce the size of LICENSE.txt (currently 5800 lines). Mainly, according to
the HOWTO there is no need to repeat the Apache license again and again.
