Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-200) Are Apache projects allowed to ship mysql-jdbc-connector in binary convenience releases?
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 02:15:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-200?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13958441#comment-13958441

Kevan Miller commented on LEGAL-200:
------------------------------------

No. You can't include mysql-jdbc-connector.

Assuming this is an optional component, general support for the connector could be included.
But your users will need to download mysql-jdbc-connector, themselves.
