Subject Generating contents for LICENSE, NOTICE for hawq incubating binary release
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 14:11:38 GMT
Hi All,

We passed Apache HAWQ binary release PMC vote but failed
with IPMC vote
The major reason is that the binary rpm package is lack of LICENSE, NOTICE

Please review below steps to generate contents for LICENSE and NOTICE and
let us know if it is the correct way or is there better ways to do that.

Step 1. Download apache hawq incubating binary tarball:

Step 2. Extract the rpm package for components from the tarball, which
basically contains hawq core (written by c/c++/java), pxf and ranger
(written by java)

*[gpadmin@localhost Downloads]$ ls -alt hawq_rpm_packages*

*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin 84083656 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin  8892442 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin 55353540 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin     5668 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin    27034 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin    51142 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin    68824 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin    24724 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin    18675 Apr 10 10:41
*-rw-r--r--. 1 gpadmin gpadmin   227890 Apr 10 10:41

Step 3. For the LICENSE of hawq core, pxf, and ranger binary, we add below
contents based on the LICENSE in hawq core source tarball

1) get the contents by extracting them from rpm. For example,
rpm2cpio hawq-ranger-plugin- | cpio -div


2) check which license does each of the library jar use and add them to the
LICENSE file for binary release.

Is there any tools can that show which license does each of the jar file
use or we can only do that by searching on the internet? Thanks.
