I cannot post any citation from the mail I referred since I just saw
that it was a private list where I read it.

Bottom line of the mail was that the JSR-170 terms of license allowed by
Sun's lawyers for the JCR specification (which includes the JCR
interface jar) are not compatible with ASF.

Futher it was pointed out that the JCR API (as interface), will either
already be present in the J2SE engine (with or without an implementation
from java 6 up) or must be downloaded and installed by the user (either
directly in $JAVA_HOME/lib or into the location I pointed out before

The following has to be done once:
cd whiteboard/dispatcher/lib
mkdir api
cd api
wget .

After this you can


P.S.: Does this answer your question?
