Description Sebb 2013-10-17 16:52:22 UTC
The NOTICE file in Tomcat trunk (and 7.x and 6.x) uses the wrong wording.

The 4th line should say [1][2]:

This product includes software developed at

however it actually says:

This product includes software developed by

which is not the same thing.

[Note that AL 1.0 and 1.1 did use the "developed by" wording; maybe that is the origin of the problem.]

Comment 1 Violeta Georgieva 2013-10-18 12:01:13 UTC
Fixed in trunk and 7.0.x and will be included in 8.0.0-RC6 and 7.0.47 onwards.
Moving to Tomcat 6.

Comment 2 Mark Thomas 2013-11-07 09:58:42 UTC
Fixed in 6.0.x for 6.0.38 onwards.
Comment 3 Konstantin Kolinko 2013-11-07 11:20:04 UTC
Fixed in Tomcat Native trunk and 1.1.x.

Tomcat Connectors (mod_jk) already use the correct text.
