Subject Re: Making up policy on the fly
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2009 18:23:41 GMT
Hi Ant,

I didn't intend to make up stuff on the fly, especially policy.

After having been through the fine points of LICENSE vs. NOTICE so  
many times, I thought the consensus was to put *all* licenses into the  
top level LICENSE file. But having just scoured the official public  
pages promulgating policy, I can't find it.

Let's continue the discussion.

I still believe that it's bad form to put licenses in several places  
in distributions because users might not find them and thereby not  
know what they're getting.
