Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Reminder to update your feature "licenses" for Luna

That sound about right, Scott.
If you ever need to check in extreme detail, the authoritative guide is

According to it, even though document and content is the same, "notice.html" is what should be at the root of zip files.
and in the features themselves, it is called "license.html" (even though it is "not really a license").

So beside having have the two files in root of each feature (license.html  and  epl-v10.html [unchanged, frm previous]) the has two properties,
licenseURL=license.html [which likely doesn't have to change, if name of file stays the same],
and then
license=<plain text of license.html>

When adding the "plain text" version to properties, be sure to maintain the tabs and "end of lines" (Linux form) as they are ... which if you pull from git, should be easy, if you get from website, such as from
when be sure to use something like
Using the browsers "save as" function may change characters in ways you wouldn't want them changed!.

Sorry in advance if this is covered ground somewhere...but I can't seem to find it.

For those projects that are still using the 'old way'...and therefore need to update the files by hand...I want to clarify what actually needs to be updated to meet these requirements...please correct if wrong/missing, etc:

In the features:

notice.html  (the SUA in it's own content)   (the SUA in the file)

That's it, right?  I've got the new content from the legal git repo, but want to verify that this is the extent of the necessary changes.

Has anyone created and shared among EF projects a script to do this?   Not that I'll actually use it :), but useful to ask.

I'm sure everyone is aware of the "new license" requirement:

And now that we in Platform (and MPC) have updated -- which demonstrated my updated "repo report" appears to be working correctly -- I thought it'd be a good time to send a reminder.

It'd be nice to get as many updated as possible for M7, and certainly by RC1. It really does give a much better "user experience" and better "first impression" to those updating/installing to get that simpler, more meaningful license dialog.
