Closed Bug 793469 Opened 8 years ago Closed 8 years ago
Some files on en-US local (central) are missing MPL2 license headers
These files are currently missing the MPL2 header license /browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/devtools/responsiveUI.properties /browser/locales/en-US/pdfviewer/chrome.properties /browser/locales/en-US/pdfviewer/viewer.properties /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/extensions/extensions.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/extensions/extensions.properties /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/help/help-toc.rdf /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/help/welcome.xhtml As a consequence some tools don't add the correct license header to the localized file.
I think that help-toc.rdf and welcome.xhtml have a correct MPL notice after the XML declaration, but there are other files that don't have it. Not sure about the inc files, but there should be no problem adding it to dtd and properties files. browser/locales/en-US/defines.inc browser/locales/en-US/profile/bookmarks.inc mobile/android/locales/en-US/defines.inc mobile/android/locales/en-US/chrome/about.dtd mobile/locales/en-US/profile/bookmarks.inc mobile/xul/locales/en-US/defines.inc mobile/xul/locales/en-US/chrome/about.dtd toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/about.dtd toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/aboutRights.dtd toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/plugins/plugins.dtd toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/plugins/plugins.properties toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/update/updates.dtd toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/update/updates.properties

If those files need a license header, this means that Gerv's script is not getting all files (e.g. I didn't have bookmark.inc in patch for bug 792748 but the license header is missing like en-US.
The script has a number of limitations, and tries to be "safe". So, for example, if it thinks that a file already has a license but one it doesn't recognise, it won't relicense it. That could be triggered by e.g. the file having the word "Copyright" in it somewhere. Also, if the script cannot automatically work out the correct comment character from the file extension, it won't add a license to it. This is the case for ".inc" files, as that extension is used for several filetypes. I can certainly do all these manually. Are we certain the list of ones you guys care about is complete, or might there be more? Gerv

Does this bug apply to comm-central? There is the list of files for Thunderbird and Seamonkey, which don't have MPL2 license headers: mail/chrome/messenger/aboutRights.dtd mail/chrome/messenger/accountCreation.properties other-licenses/branding/thunderbird/brand.dtd other-licenses/branding/thunderbird/brand.properties suite/chrome/branding/aboutRights.dtd suite/chrome/common/pref/pref-offlineapps.dtd
l10n-central (I don't work on comm-central, so someone else should check) /browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/devtools/responsiveUI.properties /browser/locales/en-US/pdfviewer/chrome.properties /browser/locales/en-US/pdfviewer/viewer.properties /browser/locales/en-US/profile/bookmarks.inc /mobile/android/locales/en-US/chrome/about.dtd /mobile/xul/locales/en-US/chrome/about.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/about.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/aboutRights.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/extensions/extensions.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/extensions/extensions.properties /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/plugins/plugins.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/plugins/plugins.properties /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/update/updates.dtd /toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/mozapps/update/updates.properties Still not sure about .inc files, since I don't think tools manage those files directly.
.inc files are used by the preprocessor. I'm not sure how the comments and the #filter emptyLines interact, though, so you may need to add the licensing comment after the #filter.
The files from comments 0 and 1: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/74a06c56da4e (In reply to Alexander L.

Are those copies of files from mozilla-central? Gerv

Looks like I've missed locales/en-US part. Correct list is: /mail/locales/en-US/chrome/messenger/aboutRights.dtd /mail/locales/en-US/chrome/messenger/accountCreation.properties /other-licenses/branding/thunderbird/locales/en-US/brand.dtd /other-licenses/branding/thunderbird/locales/en-US/brand.properties /suite/locales/en-US/chrome/branding/aboutRights.dtd /suite/locales/en-US/chrome/common/pref/pref-offlineapps.dtd
