Subject Re: Question about downloading binaries
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2012 18:24:10 GMT
Are there still requirements for the source tree in SVN, as far as
having applicable LICENSE and NOTICE files there?  My understanding is
then that the source LICENSE and NOTICE files must reside at the root
level in the SVN tree - which implies that the binary tar/zip build
CANNOT be built from the same root.  Is that correct?

source L&N first as I think there is (yet again) a wider discussion to be had regarding
convenience binaries...
