Subject Re: SQOOP LICENSE.txt question
Date Tue, 05 Dec 2017 11:35:18 GMT
Hi Attila,

I am not a PMC Member but I took a look and found that e.g. for Flume the
version handling is the same, see https://github.com/apache/
flume/blob/trunk/LICENSE or for the latest Sqoop2 release too:

Based on this I would say we should follow the existing process and also
regarding the binary/source tar.gz files I would do the same as in the
previous release.

Of course, a confirmation from a PMC Member would be great.
