As Janet Campbell from the Eclipse Foundation discovered, "There has been some interest in using Jaxen 1.1 in Eclipse. During the course of our review of the project, we found an article included in the distribution that is copyrighted to the Associated Press (jaxen_1_1/code/xml/nitf.xml) which appears to have a restriction on re-distribution. Can you advise if you obtained the Associated Press' permission to re-distribute the article?"
We have no such permission, and I believe this is a copyright violation.
I have modified the head such that we are no longer using the AP's intellectual property in the tests.
However someone now needs to go through all the old versions of this file and make sure they are removed, not merely marked as deleted but actively nuked from the source repositories.
Luckily this file was merely test data, and did not get distributed by projects that merely bundled our jar file. However anyone who redistributed the source may have a problem here.
In the future, please either get permission for any files you use in test data, or rewrite the files to remove the offending content while still exposing the problem. (As an added benefit, this usually creates a smaller test case that is easier to understand and debug and that runs faster.)
