Subject Re: Dependencies on libraries licensed as Category X
Date Wed, 29 Mar 2017 17:56:08 GMT
The general guideline is provided by Apache (1, 2 and 3), but I agree 
that at minimum we should include link to the Apache license FAQ into 
the contribution guidelines.

1. https://www.apache.org/legal/
2. https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html
3. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL

Thank you,

Vlad
