> I was reviewing the licensing information for Lucene 3.0.0.  I discovered 7 files within
the servlet-api-2.4.jar file distributed with Lucene that have Sun copyrights and notices.
 Particularly interesting is this statement:
> "No part of this product or documentation may be reproduced in any form by any means
without prior written authorization of Sun and its licensors, if any."
> These files appear to be under a dual CDDL/GPLv2 license according to information I found
here:  http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/#usage
> I have a few questions I was wondering if you can clear up for me?
> 1.	Does the Apache Software Foundation have the written permission from Sun to use these
files?  If so, how does this affect my use of Lucene?
> 2.	Were they provided to the ASF under a CLA?  
> 3.	Are they licensed under the Apache License only as part of this distribution and not
under the original CDDL/GPLv2 terms of use?  Or would the use of these files mean that I would
need to provide them under the original license? (What are they licensed under?)
> 4.     The servet-api jar appears to come from Tomcat.  So am I correct that the same
issue would apply to using Tomcat or any other Apache project that uses these files?
> Here is more information on the specific files in question:
> Found in: lucene-3.0.0-source/lib/servlet-api-2.4.jar/javax/servlet/resources/
> These six files:
> j2ee_1_4.xsd, j2ee_web_services_1_1.xsd, j2ee_web_services_client_1_1.xsd, jsp_2_0.xsd,
web-app_2_4.xsd, web-jsptaglibrary_2_0.xsd
