I am not a lawyer, but my undestanding is that you can download the
playerglobal and airglobal files and store them in your company's repo, but
you cannot make it available outside your company without an agreement from

Similarly, an Apache volunteer does not have permission to copy these files
up to Maven's central repo.  It might be possible for Adobe (including me)
to decide to copy those files up there themselves, especially if there is an
easy recipe to follow.

I'd be interested if how these files are distributed is an important issue
for other Maven users.
