- Mechanisms for best handling LGPL and other legally challenging licenses in potential dependencies
will be discussed and decided during incubation. No such dependencies will be added to the
project before the legal implications have been cleared.
+ There are also some LGPL parser libraries that would be useful. Whether and how such dependencies
could be handled will be discussed during incubation. No such dependencies will be added to
the project before the legal implications have been cleared.

  I don't like listing LGPL'd libraries as dependencies.  It raises a red flag and thus invites
lengthy, non-productive discussions.  We will adhere to Apache's Third-Party Licensing Policy,
which means we cannot require LGPL'd stuff.  A "dependency" sounds like a requirement.  So,
while we'll probably permit the use of some optional LGPL'd libraries, let's not list them
as dependencies, ok?  -- DougCutting
