Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-251) Can an Apache Project depend upon a binary-only dependencies available under a permissible license
Date Sun, 01 May 2016 05:22:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15265612#comment-15265612

Sean Busbey commented on LEGAL-251:
-----------------------------------

Since it's presumably not the OP's specific library, I don't think we need to focus on Jetty
6. I'm reasonably certain HBase already has as good an answer as it's going to get on that
dependency.

For Jetty 6, I suggest digging into the history of the Codehaus Jetty repositories, now copied
to GitHub: https://github.com/codehaus?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=jetty

I had checked those, and checking again now they still have nothing relevant to Jetty 6.

> 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!
