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 05:51:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15265621#comment-15265621

David Jencks commented on LEGAL-251:
------------------------------------

WRT jetty 6.1, I happen to have a copy of the 6.1 branch here from when I was an active contributor,
and it is definitely ASL 2.0 licensed. The move to EPL happened when they moved to eclipse.
 Have you considered trying to contact Greg Wilkins or WebTide to see if he knows where the
source might be found?

> 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!
