Well, I am very confident that we are fine to use this approach.. partly 
as I believe that this was considered at the last release, and partly 
because I can't see a specific distinction between this and distributing 
jQuery and Bootstrap. Well.. at least I can't see a distinction that 
matters. The difference is that we provide a patched version for Trac 
rather than vanilla copies but all three are listed in the NOTICE and 
LICENSE files.

However, there is one aspect of this that interests me. Given that we 
maintain a patched version of Trac, it would be good to know if there 
are any changes that we should make to keep this clear directly in the 
NOTICE and/or LICENSE files.
