Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-251) Can an Apache Project depend upon a binary-only dependencies available under a permissible license
Date Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:30:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15264941#comment-15264941

Alex Harui commented on LEGAL-251:
----------------------------------

I could be wrong, but I'll bet the legal decision makers will want to know exactly which library
you want to bundle and why it doesn't have any source, and also how it is used in the product.

> 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!
