Re: [orbit-dev] Ready for code features?

There are no legal requirements to do a feature per bundle or make the license stuff particularly easy to access.  Plugin details is more than enough.  Look at all the systems that use these things and don't even have a UI.  People have to grovel through JAR files.  As a rule we have put legal files with the thing they are related to (i.e., with the bundle).

Just wondering, if there are not (at least for Apache libs) some legal
requirements that force us to have a feature per bundle? - The APL says,
that "user documentation must include the term 'This product includes
software developed by the Apache Software Foundation'".

To me, the only sensible place where to read this, is in the about box
under feature details -- the actual plugin's about_files seem to be too
hard to access for a user.
