Re: [VOTE] XBean 4.7 release

Ok checked back and the notice rules are strict on one asf page and less on another one, guess this is where the divergence came.

I feel quite bad to drop it from notice since it is a key dependency with a very particular license (BSD-3-Clause+custom).
I think it does worth mentionning it for end users but we don't have such standard file @asf, right?

Is it a big deal to keep it this way?

ASF policy is that NOTICE files are present when the consumed product includes a NOTICE file.  In BSD-3-Clause products, the copyright statement (including download link) is in the license file.  So its enough to list it there.

My vote: -1 due to incorrect NOTICE file.

It is not incorrect since the license is particular it must be in notice to be able to put all parts together on user side. If you dont you let users do again this job which is insanely bad.

Why does the NOTICE file in the resulting JAR (for the ASM shaded dependency) include

This product includes software developed at
OW2 Consortium (http://asm.ow2.org/)

There is no notice file associated with ASM 6.1, so we should not need to declare any notice.

Well it is not an asf licensed software nor an asf project so it is no bad IMHO to list it here. Also their website look a bit outdated so I was not sure it was that ok to completely drop it.

as far as I have seen, there is only the ASM upgrade, right?
