Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (TAVERNA-926) Category B licenses in taverna-databundle
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2016 02:14:39 GMT
Good idea  - it's probably something to do with the Maven build
artifacts, I've seen it just pick the first <license> before - but
they shouldn't claim to be dual license if they are now
single-license.

Could you check if this is the case inside also the JAR files of the
latest Jackson releases, as I think there has been a new major release
since the one we use?
