Licensing Todo/further investigation list

Cameron will be going through all files that are currently checked in that have not been licensed and throwing the header at them.

  • services/ - stuff from v2 that's not licensed, and Lars' migration script (need to get confirmation from Lars on which email to use.)
  • site/app/controllers/components - From v1 I think.
  • site/app/tests/test_helper.php - Original file from http://cakephp.org/pastes/show/8803bd09150cb65cc7da63f92cdbc828 ...
  • site/app/webroot/ - some of this is cake/MIT, so need to be careful. Do we want licensing in css and js files? Means the user has to download them so probably not the best idea. What's the protocol on images? Maybe just a LICENSE file in the directory? What about directories with images from cake and images we made ourselves?
  • Perhaps some license information in the top directory? (next to services and site)
