Subject RE: [VOTE] Release Apache Pig 0.1.0-incubating
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2008 21:15:40 GMT
Does the attached notice file look correct?
Also, does this mean we need to restart the entire process?

		I put the licenses in separate files in the lib
directory where all the
		3rd party libraries are following Hadoop model. I did
not realize that
		they had to go to the notice file. I can move them if
needed. Also jetty

	Having the licenses in the separate lib directory is fine but
the top NOTICE file still needs to include any attributions. For
example, pig includes javacc and the javacc license says "Copyright (c)
2003 Sun Microsystems, Inc." and the JavaCC license says "Redistribution
in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice", so add the
pig NOTICE file something like:
	    This product includes/uses the JavaCC (,
	       Copyright (c) 2003 Sun Microsystems, Inc.
	You need that for javacc, jsch, and jetty.

	Its the text at the bottom of the pig README, or that text can
be in a file on its own. The pig distro is fine as-is, i was just
pointing out that _if_ the pig-0.1.0-incubating-core.jar is going to be
distributed seperately then it would also need to include its own legal

	Yes thats the right place, but you can also publish them to a
public key server and then if peoples clients are configured correctly
the keys will be downloaded automatically. See
