Subject Re: Do Pooling jars have to contain the DISCLAIMER too?
Date Thu, 09 Apr 2020 18:07:00 GMT
Hi Dave,

unfortunately I can't see the requirement to have a DISCLAIMER in there ... nor could I find
it ... I totally agree with you, that it should be that way, but I couldn't find a written
baking of that position so I could vote -1 and send a pointer to some documentation.

    Hi Chris,
    There should not be a question. If these are official Apache packages from the project
published on Maven Central with org.apache co-ordinates then they must meet all of release
policy and include NOTICE, LICENSE, and, if incubating, DISCLAIMER. They must also be released
on the official dist server and available at even if no one would normally
get packages that way. The same should go for NPM and other distribution channels.
