Hoss Man commented on LUCENE-4431:
----------------------------------

I'm not going to pretend to know what jar is really what jar and really has what license,
but i do know that:

* tomcat ships with a servlet-api.jar
* the servlet-api.jar provided by tomcat (7.0.29) contains a META-INF/LICENSE that says it's
ASL 2.0
* at some point in the past, the copy of servlet-api.jar that solr compiled against definitely
came from tomcat: https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/lucene-solr-dev/200601.mbox/%3C20060126054430.50674.qmail@web50306.mail.yahoo.com%3E
.. i have no idea what jar we are getting from ivy now

> - The demo module has sevlet-api.jar with a ASF-named license file and the text "TODO:
fill in"
> - This also affects Solr: It has a full ASF license file, but that is wrong.
> The servlet-apoi file is CDDL license: http://download.oracle.com/otndocs/jcp/servlet-3.0-fr-eval-oth-JSpec/
(same for 2.4). The 3.0.1 JAR file also contains License in its META-INF folder.
