I'm producing a binary distributable for my Java project. I'm releasing it in two ways:
Zipped distributable on Google code
My project is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license. I use a small number of third-party parties, one of which is MIT licensed. I believe it's my obligation to make users of my project aware of the license contents, based on the following text from the license:
The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
How am I best to reference this within my source and my distributables? I'm currently thinking:
My source files needn't reference anything. They just include my Apache 2.0 boilerplate notice.
I add a LICENSE.txt file at the root of my project including the Apache 2.0 license text.
For my zipped distributable, I need to also add something that indicates a component is MIT licensed. Perhaps a NOTICE file?
For my Maven Central distribution, I needn't do anything as my artifact just declares its dependencies, but doesn't actually include them.
Does this seem like a valid plan? If so, can anyone advise how to accomplish point 3.
