NetBeans 8.2 adds Oracle copyright header to ant-deploy.xml

I have updated my NetBeans IDE to 8.2. I have found out that ant-deploy.xml has been changed. When I checked it (with diff view) a copyright header by Oracle has been added.

I don't like this much what companys writing free software slams their (huge!) copyright notices somewhere "hidden" and with the next version update in.

I have now manually prevent them from entering my projects. But for the future, I hope Oracle is not repeating this and removes such stuff.
copyright netbeans8.2 oracle update
Sorry for the silly question, but what does ant-deploy.xml do?
It seems to be part of the deployment on internal Glassfish instance. I just wanted to let other #JavaEE developers know that NetBeans 8.2 slips in an Oracle copyright notice because they may not like it, too finding it out later.
I have now uninstalled #NetBeans 8.2 and installed 8.1 again. Now the CDDL/GPL2 header is no longer "secretly" added to my files.
