I couldn't find the right comment sequence to get it to work, I think i read
somewhere its ok for a file like this to not have a license header

This appears to be a bug with the pnuts engine. This isn't a blocker is it?

Thats true. The maven-compiler-plugin is set to use 1.4 though and I have
used this with Synapse using 1.4.2 i think. Is this an issue?

Geir has said it is ok:

This is a point in time thing to make BSF useful without requiring uses do
extra downloads. I hope we can stop doing this in the near future by
implementing a core set of our own engines, or in the more medium term
future, i think script languages don't include a JSR-223 engine today as
there's no JSR-223 API impl available under a good license, so once BSF
passes the TCK script languages may start including their own JSR-223

I believe we are ok distributing them for now. They are under a BSD license
which according to the 3rd party licensing policy is a "Category A:
Authorized License". See: http://people.apache.org/~cliffs/3party.html and

- What is the distribution directory in the src zip / tgz ?

It contains the build scripts to build the bsf-all jar and for the maven
assembly plugin to create the bin and src distributions.

These are both true. Next release? Also note that right now most Javadoc
comments just refer to the Sun docs, eg see:

Some are blocking, some are not (also depending on some answers)  :)
