A possible option would be to pre tick and/or remove the checkbox in the installer?

Why do we need a prompt? We're not downloading the source, just the jar right?

This has been discussed and seems reasonably clear,  but the JIRA is not marked as closed.

We currently are as we are downloading the binary and they are contained in that, but I assume
you mean removing them from the binary and downloading them separately via the installer script?
In that case how would we handler older versions of the SDK?

Given we already have a large number of download failures I'm not sure that's the best option.

The Velocity NOTICE file in the jar doesn't look like the original/right one and may of been
incorrectly replaced.

My understanding is that its not dual licensed (ie select the license you want), but different
parts of the code are licensed under different licenses. The W3C license is compatible with
Apache and I assume you treat it like MIT/BSD license ie just add it to LICENSE.
