OK. But the original question says "It does not itself contain any source or binary code from the Amazon Kinesis client. However, this optional Spark Kinesis module requires the Kinesis client of course. And, the Kinesis client is licensed under the Amazon Software License, which is Category X.” which clearly is very different than saying it requires a jar that is licensed under category x.

Exactly my point. it sounds like this optional feature has a platform dependency on Kinesis. There is nothing wrong with that.


Just clarifying, the optional feature requires a jar that is licensed with a category x license and has a pltform dependency on Kinesis. I don't think that "there is nothing wrong with that" apllies so easy here.
