Subject Re: Derby code copyright question
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2004 11:27:32 GMT

okey, after discussing this in seven different directions, we
have a clear conclusion, which i'll summarise here:

1. the NOTICE file (or NOTICE.txt) gets created if it doesn't
   already exist, and this gets added to it:

    Portions of Apache Derby are © Copyright 2004 International
    Business Machines Corporation.  All rights reserved.

   if there are earlier copyright years in any any of the main files,
   the earliest one of all should be taken and used to change the notice
   to 'Copyright <earliest-year>, 2004 International ..'.  in other words,
   the range of copyright years in the NOTICE file should be the earliest
   one with IBM's name on it in the sources, followed by ', 2004'.

2. the ibm copyright in the individual files gets replaced with

    Apache Derby © Copyright 2004 The Apache Software Foundation.
    All rights reserved.

   and reference to the apache licence added as described in

et vóilà!  that item can then get checked off the incubation goal list
and we can focus on *real* code issues. :-)

see also for common questions
about this stuff.  the procedure above, which has finally been clarified,
should be used by the incubator folks to update that file at some point.
