I was referring to the disclaimer link in the application not the DISCLAIMER file.

And that correct with the installer, there's a source kit which someone can take and compile
the application.

What "regulation" exactly? Can you point to me page that state that you can't load XML files
outside of it's SVN trunk?

> This is potentially a legal issue
What is the legal issue here? The installer will be voted on and distributed in the normal
Apache Way ( The XML file is also in SVN at that only Apache
committers can access and change. The installer will only download official Apache releases
that have been voted on and placed in

I guess worse case a committer could modify the file XML file in SVN to download another Apache
binary kit but I think we would notice that and fix.
