To: <[hidden email]>


Hi, team

When we are using Apache Creadur to audit licensing and notice files, we
met with two problems. I'm looking for any people who have experiences on
that.

1. Apache Rat cannot acknowledge the "minified" ASF, i.e. the short format
of Apache license header, which we plan to use in the small test files.
2. Apache Tentacles cannot support tar.gz files in the staging repo.

We have solutions to bypass these two questions. For the first issue, we
can put those files with mini headers in the Rat exclusion list. For the
second issue, we can use bash script to check LICENSE and NOTICE or we can
use zip format instead, other than tar.gz. But I would like to check if
there are any other suggestions to these issues. Thanks.

Best regards
Ying Chun Guo (Daisy)

Please raise a JIRA against RAT so the license can be added to the list.

Meanwhile, you can add your own licenses:

Please don't do that; see above.

Thanks sebb

What do we do with “Apache Tentacles cannot support tar.gz”

How are others dealing with this? Are you using Tentacles or another tool
in your releases?

Probably a similar response - raise a ticket to Tentacles
https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/TENTACLES/issues

FWIW, this is the first I'm ever hearing of this project.

Never used it, but here are some suggestions:

Provide a patch to the project.

Unpack the archive and check it manually

Unpack the archive and repack as zip, then use tentacles again.

If there is a zip archive as well as a tar.gz, then use Tentacles to
check the zip, and a diff program to check that the contents of the
two archives are the same.
(which they should be, barring any EOL considerations).
