Subject Re: Category-B tarballs in SVN (was Re: External libraries)

Perfectly valid answer with one caveat:
I don't know of any Apache policy that
directly applies here.  I'd bet that 

if httpd had what it considered a valid
reason for including the source of a
Category-B licensed product in their
svn tree, nobody, not even the board,
would have grounds to object, especially
not if they'd passed the issue off
to LEGAL and didn't receive a negative
