Are Apache projects allowed to include Logback in their builds?
---------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LEGAL-63
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-63
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Ceki Gulcu


Background:

SLF4J is licensed under the MIT license. Logback is licensed under the LGPL.

SLF4J has an API which logback implements. SLF4J can be used with at least 5 other implementations,
some of which are licensed under AL2.0 and some under MIT. 

Given that the end-user can pick and choose an implementation and assuming a given Apache
Project (AP) only imports SLF4J classes in its source code (java classes):

1) can AP include references to logback in its build scripts?

2) can AP include logback in its standard distribution?
