When installing several projects I noticed
that some project downloads contain the files epl_v10.html and notice.html
in the eclipse directory while others
don't. For example, the Eclipse IDE, releng tools and EMF contain these
files. GEF, JEM and WTP do not contain these files.
When unzipping the projects into the Eclipse home directory, the zips that
contain the licence and notice files prompt me to overwrite them. This
seems like a mistake as I don't think I should ever overwrite license information
but may in fact be the correct packaging for Eclipse project zips.
The projects that are part of the Callisto release should be consistent
in their packaging. Should project zips contain the epl_v10.html and notice.html
files in their eclipse directory? If yes, it looks like several projects
will need to add these files for the Callisto release. If no, at least
a couple projects will need to remove these files for Callisto.
This issue is being tracked in bug 135951.
