Hi,
I am about to open source a large ecore model (using EPL v2), and some sample model data in XMI files.
I can get the copyright message into the generated java files quite easily.
It would seem to make sense to have a copyright notice in the .ecore and .xmi files also, do other people do that?
I tried adding a copyright to the top of these files by adding at the first line:
<!-- copyright etc -->
but then I couldn't open those files with the relevant editors (ecore editor and sample reflective ecore model editor).
If it is not possible I guess I could put a '.about' file in the same directory, but this doesn't seem as precise as putting the copyright in the file itself, especially as EPL v2 has a bit more of a focus on 'files' as opposed to 'modules'
Any Suggestions welcome.
Thanks,
Neil

I would suggest adding a documentation annotation
containing a copyright notice to the model's root element.

Hi

Few tools allow a comment in front of the "<xml". It may not even be legal.

Put the copyright comment on line 2.

An EAnnotation is something you'll really see in editor, and XML comment will disappear when you edit, so the annotation approach seems better.
