Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-251) Can an Apache Project depend upon a binary-only dependencies available under a permissible license

Aditya Kishore created LEGAL-251:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Can an Apache Project depend upon a binary-only dependencies available
under a permissible license
                 Key: LEGAL-251
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-251
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Aditya Kishore


While researching on this, ran into many related queries and their answers but could not find
one which address this specifically.

In one place, LEGAL-230, it appears it is okay to depend on a binary whose source code is
not published but is available under a permissible license.

To ask it specifically, let's say if there is a binary version of a library, 'foo', available
under one of the permissible license but no source is available.

In such case, can an Apache project

# Have a compile time dependency on such binary?
# Include this binary in its distribution?

Thanks for your help!
