-----------------------------

    Summary: Is it ok/meaningful to have a dependency licensed as ASL just for Apache Software
Foundation, but LGPL for anyone else?  (was: License Status of a dependency for a newly incubating
project)

> We are in the process of setting up Apache Isis into the incubator (the code prior to
Apache being called the Naked Objects Framework and sister projects).
> I've now realized that one of the modules has a small dependency on code that has an
LGPL license (a small Javascript file) that would be part of the distribution.  Since my understanding
was that LGPL is not ASL 2 compatible, I contacted the developer about whether he might consider
moving to ASL.  His response was to grant permission as follows:
> -begin-
> Yes, I authorize "NO framework and your sister projects accepted  [2] into the Apache
incubator" to use my XMLHttpRequest.js library (available at the http://code.google.com/p/xmlhttprequest/
 and currently licensed under LGPL) with the ASL license.
> [2] http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/IsisProposal. 
> -end-
> So, my question is: is this sufficient for us?
> Many thanks,
> Dan Haywood
