We will not be making use of the "Secondary License" feature; instead, we will continue to use dual licensing LGPL + EPL. Consequently, another round of permissions requests to copyright holders is not required since automatic upgrade provisions are built in to EPL1.
We will not be making any changes to the copyright lines or @author tags in files.
The proposed header looks as follows:
* (C) Copyright 2003-2018, by Ben Bitdiddle and Contributors.
* * See the CONTRIBUTORS.md file distributed with this work for additional * information regarding copyright ownership. * * This program and the accompanying materials are made available under the * terms of the Eclipse Public License 2.0 which is available at *http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl-2.0, or the * GNU Lesser General Public License v2.1 or later * which is available at *http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/lgpl-2.1-standalone.html. * * SPDX-License-Identifier: EPL-2.0 OR LGPL-2.1-or-later */
Please let me know if you have any questions about these changes. For the moment, continue to use the old header format for new contributions; we'll let you know once the change to the new format has been applied.
