Subject Re: Do all third-party dependencies require software grant agreements?

Adding to Robert's answer; the general recommendation is to depend on a
downloadable artifact from the origin project, and only if that is
impossible should one import the full expanded codebase into SVN..

Hi again,

The first time I read http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/index.html I
got the impression that a SGA is required before *any* third-party libraries
can be imported into SVN.  However, if the library is simply a dependency
and is copied without changes simply to allow bundling, is a SGA really

For example, I have just realised that we also bundle the jQuery JavaScript
library, which is released under the BSD (modified) license.  Do we need to
ask the author to sign a SGA too?  And what if we cannot contact the author
of such a library, does that mean we cannot import it into SVN even if it
was released under an ASL-compatible license?
