License violations, do you even care?

Minion violates mutliple third party licenses.

Just by looking into the lib folder, i found these:

maven-scm, log4j, ...: Apache License, v2.0
As of 4 a) "You must give any other recipients of the Work or Derivative Works a copy of this License; and"

jregex: BSD License
2: Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice,

kefirbb: LGPL
1: "keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the Library."



And it would so simple to avoid any license violations:

Just add some "About" or "Licenses" Button in the minion App and Mention the used software, the license and a link to the license. Also add a copy of each of this license in the Software package and you are done.


I write you this here to give you a chance to fix this issue.

I will submit the information of the license violations to all effected developers on June/15 this year.
