Subject Re: [ASK PMC] Restriction of using ACS with non-oss libs?

All libraries (including our own) include restrictions in their licensing.
The default build path contains nothing that isn't Apache-licensed or
more lenient (MIT, BSD, etc) in compliance with the ASF's policy on
3rd-party libraries.

The same policy does allow non-default build options to contain
licensing that is more restrictive, and we do not allow automated
download. E.g. you must source and provide those libraries yourself.
This (at least in theory) requires explicit action on the part of the
user consuming those libraries, and hopefully will have them reviewing
the terms of the license in the process.

IIRC, Wido's repos contain a mixture of both oss and noredist
libraries, but that is not a project managed repository.
