Subject Re: ThirdParty Jars in GData

OK, disclaimer first: I'm not a lawyer and I am not 100% sure on all  
of this, but here are some things I found while digging into this:

I did some digging and there is a _DRAFT_ policy at http://

See also:  
(particularly March of 2006, where the draft policy was first discussed.

I don't know if any of this answers your question or not.  Your best  
bet, most likely, is to start with the ANT download approach.  You  
might also want to indicate what the licenses are of the other  
libraries, so that others with more knowledge could give you more info.

Also, check how contrib/db/bdb does it, which uses Berkeley DB, which  
is under the Sleepycat license, which is one of the licenses  
_excluded_ by the draft above.  I am not saying this means it is  
correctly done, just that there is some precedent for it.
