Reported by Marshall:
I noticed that some but not all of the internal projects within the examples
folder (example-project, extensions-project, TextRulerExample) have their own
license/notice - which can be a maintenance issue - for example, these have a 2013
end date in the Notice part. Normally, the License/Notice files are put at the
top level of a distribution; I'm not sure why they're here.
The NOTICE file in many places has duplicate info for creative commons that's
also part of license file. Normally any information that's already in the
License file should not be also duplicated in the Notices file. The Notices
file is for things which are not part of the license terms, but need to be
present (such as copyrights). See
where it says, in part:
However, elements such as the copyright notifications embedded within BSD
and MIT licenses need not be duplicated in NOTICE – it suffices to leave those
notices in their original locations.
Looks like the build process for the individual project Javadoc jars is
including the license /notice files appropriate for jars containing Icons from
Mark James, but those Jars don't have those icons.
Also the Mark James attribution in both notice and license has an extra "the" in
front of Mark James:
This product contains icons developed by the Mark James — should read:
