Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Copyrights and org.eclipse.license


I didnt look at the report before but now that I see that Riena is also called out, I have a question. Why does the word „Copyright“ has to be at the beginning and why does it make a difference if it is not ?   6.0.0.v20140506_6_0_0_M7b

I dont think a lawyer would think that this makes a difference…..

Betreff: [cross-project-issues-dev] Copyrights and org.eclipse.license

Hi David

While checking, I see that my plugins are reported as

"Indeterminant: feature's copyright text contains the word 'copyright' but not at beginning:"

which seems to be the same story as Hudson complaining that %copyright is undefined when re-using org.eclipse.license.

However when I check the copyrights in Eclipse SDK Installation Details|Features it seems that something has done a good job of deducing the copyright as:

(c) Copyright Eclipse contributors and others. 2003, 2014.  All rights reserved.


so I was impressed and ignored the Hudson warnings.

If there is clever code providing the copyright, why doesn't your report find it?

Any idea where the clever code is?
