|[jgit-dev] FYI, history rewrite coming|
Looks like we need to rewrite the complete JGit history. The EMO IP team isn't happy with our header. They want a header that looks like the standard EPL file header, but s/EPL/EDL/. I've already tried to push back once and demand that the header look *much* different from the standard EPL file header. They returned with a request for the standard EPL file header, but s/EPL/EDL/, and with the EDL attached below. *sigh* That means I need to go run filter-branch with a magic edit script to edit all of the JGit files, in every revision, before we can distribute from Eclipse.org. Apparently the template they have requested also requires us to list all contributors in the header, above the license. That is going to be ugly for some files. Nobody keeps that stuff current. That's what the #@**! VCS is for. <whine format="irc"> /me is not happy about moving JGit to Eclipse.org </whine> This is going to have to wait a while. I don't currently have time to burn to make some lawyers happy with a slightly different header text. If that means we miss the next project release review window, so be it. -- Shawn.
