Description Curt Arnold 2010-04-09 03:37:05 UTC
The log4j-1.2.16-javadoc.jar produced during the release build omitted the NOTICE and LICENSE files from the META-INF while it included .svn directories for doc-files directories.  The build process should be modified (which could involve pushing the issue into Maven) to fix the issue.

I found http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MJAVADOC-232 and http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MJAVADOC-173. I'm not sure what version of the plugin you are using - but does one of them cover it?


Both of those but are marked closed for over a year, but upgrade the pom.xml to use version 2.7 did not avoid the embedded .svn directories.  Adding a <excludedocfilessubdir>.svn</excludedocfilessubdir> did eliminate the embedded .svn directories.

To add the NOTICE and LICENSE to the META-INF directory, I used a snippet from the parent POM from commons and added it to log4j, extras, component, receivers and chainsaw.
