      Description

      for AsterixDB (0.8.8-incubating) and Hyracks (0.2.17-incubating) (RC1):

      • some of those jars contain bundled software which may need to be added to LICENSE and NOTICE
      • LICENSE lists a large number of CDDL licensed bits of software. CDDL is Category B we should provide a link to the source code (see 3.1. Availability of Source Code in (1)). Previous advice on legal-discuss was this goes in NOTICE but recent discussions have left this a bit more muddled.
      • There's no need to list in NOTICE the copyright years and name of an ASF licensed product or the line " This product includes software developed by”.
      • The NOTICE files have a lot of not required information in them (2)
