Subject Re: Licence camel-raspberrypi

Hi

Yeah unfortunately it seems pi4j embeds wiring pi binaries in their
releases which then "affects the licensing terms".

In fact I think its misleading from pi4j saying its ASL2 and not
clearly saying they binary link and include LGPL3 work.

I posted a question about this on their user forum
