Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 07:35:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-50?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12792807#action_12792807

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-50:

Not a huge fan of JSR spec licenses, but I'm happy to consider this license as fine for the
JCR API jar - "jcr-1.0.jar".

Suggested action item is to add this as a specific item to resolved.html.

>     sell, import, and otherwise transfer said file on its own or
>     as part of a larger work that makes use of the JCR API.
> This is pretty much similar to the LEGAL-36 case where broad rights are given to redistribute
*unmodified* versions of the file. The consensus seems to be that such dependencies are OK
and can be embedded in binaries, but that such unmodifiable files should not be kept in our
