Ralph Goers commented on LEGAL-336:
-----------------------------------

Isn't this the same thing as a "system" or "platform" dependency?

> The special clause added to the GPL license allows the software to be linked without
suffering from the copyleft paradigm - https://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/license.html
> Should this cause us to move this license to the Cat B, e.g. it can be used as a binary
dependency but you must not import any source code?
