Re: [VOTE] Release XBean 4.7 (take 2)

well if that's the direction we take I'm tempted to say that: in both cases we are perfectly legally fine
so we should just move forward the release if that's the only issue found. Then once passed we should solve it in a dedicated thread.

This means that it is not needed to mention this one anymore in the context of this vote IMHO.

well, that's why we had the BSD in there! You see?

And no, the current NOTICE is NOT wrong. The BSD-3clause, the ALv2 etc allow to create a derivative work which is under another license. And this is why we have

"Apache XBean Copyright 2005-2013 The Apache Software Foundation"

in the NOTICE file.

But of course, by removing the BSD part from the NOTICE file this is now totally off.
Note that the original legal ticket was created for a project which only had a very few BSD classes. In our case the majority or work is BSD. Still the summary derivative work (our shaded bundle) is ALv2.

So my personal opinion is to revert back to the previous version of the NOTICE!

The NOTICE file in the JAR is now worse.  It indicates that the code was developed at the ASF.

IMHO, there should be no NOTICE file in the JAR.

If the NOTICE file includes just

Apache XBean :: ASM 6 shaded (repackaged)
Copyright 2005-2018 The Apache Software Foundation

That should be enough.
