Subject Re: []DISCUSS] Release Apache VXQuery Incubating 0.3 (RC2)
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2014 02:35:13 GMT
Hi Justin,

the use this ODC-BY 1.0 licensed file has been allowed in
We filed this JIRA for our 0.2 release.

The date in the NOTICE is covered by and
it will be addressed for the next release.

Some build instructions are available on the website, but I agree that we should put those
into the source artifact as well.
I've just created for this.

Thanks for checking the release!

OK. Does this need to be compressed as the source package is compressed?

I find that it has no license header, perhaps the original ODC-BY 1.0 header has been removed?
As CDC-BY 1.0 is mentioned in LICENSE I think this is OK by Apache but may not be OK by CDC-BY
license terms? Anyone confirm?
