James is correct I went back and looked at the version of Rhino that is
being used and it the 1.6 version and it is license under the Netscape
Public License Version 1.1 http://www.mozilla.org/NPL/.  We have
supplied the diffs for the changes.  

The use of Rhino is strictly for the dojo build system to work.

 That particular Rhino jar is the same one we've been using since the
start, so I assume it is the old MPL one.

Hmm, custom_rhino.jar is an interesting one. Prior to version 1.6R5, I
believe Rhino was MPL licensed, and as of 1.6R5 it is dual licensed
under MPL and GPL. It is coming to XAP through Dojo. Do we know which
version of Rhino this is?

If it's 1.6R5 or later, how does a dual MPL / GPL license work in an ASF
project? Does the ASF have to pick one of the licenses, and are we
allowed to do that? Can we distribute something that's potentially GPL
licensed?
