Subject Re: Standards-oriented content in svn (was: w3c license versus svn)
Date Tue, 30 Dec 2008 11:17:06 GMT
The idea is just that:
- it's standards' material so changes is not *wished* (in principle,  
you could always change, you should just be careful to name it  
- this does not follow the same rythm as any source of Apache

So making it "a binary dependency" as imported from a maven repo and  
thus not put in the source code is the right approach I feel.
That repo could be at Apache or at W3C... I don't really care.
It should just be a repository that is not within Apache sources.
