    Hey @jvwing & @joewitt 
    
    James, your comment listing the associated JIRA legal issue actually had the nice side
effect of getting included in the associated issue.  A response is here: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-198?focusedCommentId=15321636&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-15321636
    
    Unfortunately, it seems like this falls under Category X and cannot be required for the
build (meaning we would not be able to bundle it) from my interpretation of Justin's comment.
 Seems we are a bit stuck with regards to NiFi as a default inclusion with our assembly and
would likely need help as to how build separately until we are able to get an extension registry
that would perhaps provide some additional flexibility.

> We recently received a patch to add support for the Amazon Kinesis data source in Apache
Spark, which uses the following library: https://github.com/awslabs/amazon-kinesis-client
licensed under the Amazon Software License: https://aws.amazon.com/asl/. Would it be okay
to have a Maven dependency on this library in an Apache project? From a quick look at the
license, it seems reasonable, but I’d like to double-check. The one restriction that may
be strange is "3.3 Use Limitation. The Work and any derivative works thereof only may be used
or intended for use with the web services, computing platforms or applications provided by
Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates, including Amazon Web Services, Inc.”. However, it also
says "derivative works shall not include works that remain separable from, or merely link
(or bind by name) to the interfaces of, the Work", so I'm not sure our project would be a
derivative work.
