Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-163) Are "Ubuntu License 1.0" licensed fonts allowed in the repo
Date Tue, 30 Apr 2013 06:52:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-163?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13645328#comment-13645328

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-163:

So to paraphrase, (facetiously :) ):

* A Java project that stores junit.jar in lib/, cannot include that in the foo-src.tar.gz
but instead has to either tell the user to download it manually or setup a magic download
that the user is only vaguely aware of (pom.xml for example).
* A project cannot include images, but has to provide the 'source' for those images.

I can see there being an idealistic argument made that all parts of the source tarball must
be built from source (which would be a shock to the system for Java projects), and I can see
media artifacts being treated differently. I can also see category A, B and X all having dependencies
that are optional and put manually in place by the users. 

I can't see, though, that there is any difference between a source tarball that contains a
binary dependency and a source tarball that provides a build script that magically downloads
binaries behind the scenes.

> We like to include some ubuntu fonts in our testsuite. They are licensed using the "Ubuntu
License 1.0" [1].  
> I'm not a license expert, but it looks ok to me. WDYT? Is it ok to add those as test
resources to out svn repository? Is it ok to ship them as part of the source tarball?
