Subject RE: maven: will I be shot for using systemPath?
Date Mon, 27 Aug 2012 14:54:16 GMT
Olivier,

The jars I'm talking about are things like the F5, Juniper, and VMware
SDK's.  We don't have license rights to put them on a web server because
were not allowed to redistribute them.  So this code will not be built
by default for Apache CloudStack, but developers working on this code
will still need some way to build them.  I was thinking using systemPath
was a way to address this, but was curious if you have a different
approach that is better?

I do have one jar, libvirt, that could be put in apache extras.  Once
libvirt gets re-licensed I can put it in apache extras, but currently
its GPL (or LGPL?) so I'd rather not put it there yet.

Darren
