|[eclipse.org-planning-council] Fwd: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] about_files and JPMS|
Triggered by a recent issue I started a discussion about $subject on the AC mailing list.
After a bit more research I crafted the following reply. I believe the Planning Council is technically the owner of the wiki page (About_files). Thus, I think this is of interest to you. I think there is no longer a requirement to have an about.html file in the jar/plug-in root but instead have a LICENSE file in META-INF. It also looks like the about_files folder and its content has been replaces with a NOTICE file, which _should_ go into META-INF as well.
I'm posting this here for visibility because it affects the train. As the about_files folder is causing technical difficulties with JPMS we are consider renaming them for EBR and thus Orbit as well. After reviewing the legal docs it looks like there is an opportunity to get rid of it completely.
