Subject Re: Consult License Compatible Issue

Yukon,
Cat-B means that your project is allowed to have a compile/runtime
dependency on an unmodified version of that, but you are NOT allowed to
include the source code, modified or not, into your project. The reason (at
least in many cases) is that there are reciprocity in these licenses, such
that if you make a change you must release that change under the same
license or that modifications must be contributed back.
