Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache DataSketches-cpp (incubating) 1.0.0 [RC2]
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2019 22:28:55 GMT
Hi Justin,

We are still a bit uncertain what you mean by "license information" in the
NOTICE file.

Are you suggesting to remove the two single lines:
Copyright (C) 1998-2019 CERN for the benefit of the LHCb and ATLAS
Copyright (c) 2017 Benjamin R. Jack ?

The rest of the content in this file (after the first 8 lines), is
organized by license type and the text under each license type
is to help the user locate where in our release code we leverage code of
that license type and where the original source code is.  I don't consider
this location information as "license information".  It is just helpful
location information to the relevant code.
