Subject Re: the case of the maven wrapper
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2019 08:18:29 GMT
FYI I've asked takari to donate the wrapper to the ASF. It is
important but tiny

Meanwhile, we will remove the wrapper from the source distribution as
putting it in the NOTICE file is something off-putting to a few of our
contributors. We can build without the wrapper and it isn't worth
making a commitment to the NOTICE file for what seems not thought

If the enforcement rules loosen back to where we don't need to do
this, or the plugin or a copy of it is donated to the ASF, we'll
likely put it back into the source distribution.
