Description Alexander Pepin 2010-06-18 12:01:02 UTC
The samples provided with IDE contains "Copyright (c) 2009, Sun Microsystems, Inc.". They should be updated according AtenRebrandingList.
Comment 1 Thomas Preisler 2010-06-20 14:43:17 UTC
The copyrights should *not* be updated according to the AtenRebrandingList. The AtenRebrandingList is for software from OSS and is mainly proprietary whereas the samples referred to here are from the open source NetBeans. We should use whatever copyright is appropriate for NetBeans samples.

So the question is which  copyrights should we use? I checked many different sample projects in NetBeans 6.9 like Java, JavaFX and others, and we are all using the same (slightly outdated) copyright. Not clear if it should be updated and to what. If we update, the rest of Netbeans should probably follow suit. Will need to investigate what we should do.
Comment 2 Thomas Preisler 2010-06-20 15:27:48 UTC
Marking it SSIDE as it may be a showstopper for Aten.
Comment 3 rbalada 2010-06-22 07:49:43 UTC
Please report on progress, especially if you can make it into 6.9.1, if not please consider removing 6.9.1_CANDIDATE keyword.

Comment 4 Thomas Preisler 2010-06-22 09:21:34 UTC
Will fix this later today. I think I have the new text ready.

Last chance for inclusion in release691.

Please verify within 4 hours from now, since I have got limited time to transplant remaining bugfixes into release691 repository. June 25, 1 PM Prague time is my deadline. After that time, please do also the transplant/porting work if you want to include it.

Thank you for understanding,
Comment 12 Thomas Preisler 2010-06-25 06:52:05 UTC
I'm not sure Aleander P. has access to bugzilla today due to offsite event so here is what I wil suggest:

All incorrect copyrights were fixed in the first change set. This first change set was also verified by QA (Alexander) so it (the first change set) can be ported safely to 6.9.1.

Alexandder also suggested to add missing copyright to one more file. This is not a critical fix and may not be required so it is not critical to include the second change set. 

So I suggest you port first change set (f4570418720d) to 6.9.1 and we should be fine.

If you are comfortable with it, you can also port second change set (1eac9caa0138) but it is not critical.
