Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-393.
    Resolution: Fixed

Closing with Roman's "use option A".

Please reopen if that wasn't possible or incurs significant debt.

>                 Key: LEGAL-393
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-393
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Nico Kruber
>            Priority: Major
> As part of providing the ability to use an OpenSSL-based SSL engine in Apache Flink,
I need to include the [{{netty-tcnative}}|http://netty.io/wiki/forked-tomcat-native.html#wiki-h2-4]
binaries into our {{flink-shaded-netty-4}} artifacts. {{netty-tcnative}} itself is Apache
2 licensed, but since both [OpenSSL|https://www.openssl.org] as well as [boringssl|https://github.com/google/boringssl]
(a fork of OpenSSL) are BSD-style licences (https://github.com/google/boringssl/blob/master/LICENSE,
https://www.openssl.org/source/license.html) and not Apache 2 (yet?), I was a bit worried
about the implications and which way to go.
> The following options are available:
> a) using a jar file with native code dynamically linked against system OpenSSL libraries
(there the jar contains only Apache 2 code)
> b) using a jar file with statically linked binaries
> Now both have their individual technical consequences but which of these two (if any)
qualifies from a legal perspective and what are the implications?
