[~kyork] said:

"If we can treat JavaScriptCore as platform dependency, and bundling JavaScriptCore in the
binary of Weex is OK here"

That's not what Myrle and Craig are saying. We are saying that you can treat JavaScriptCore
as a platform dependency so it is ok to use it.

But it is not ok to bundle it in the Weex binary. We are saying that you can include instructions
how users can download it.

> Hi, there
> I am a PPMC member of Apache Weex, and I'm suggested to move a discussion[1] about LGPL
runtime to here.
> Let me briefly introduce the situation.
> Apache Weex is a mobile framework and targets three platforms/environment currently,
e.g. Android, iOS, Normal Browser.
> In order to support Android Platform, Weex has to rely on Webkit at runtime, which is
under LGPL and BSD License. The header files(.h file) that Weex includes from Webkit are all
under BSD License and Weex.so has a dynamic link to Webkit.so at runtime. This is only for
Android platform as iOS/Browser has a built-in Webkit environment already.
> I'd like to know whether this complies ASF's License policy [3], Thanks.
> BTW: Currently, Weex bundles Webkit.so and Weex.so toghether in its convenience binary
for users' convenience, but Webkit.so could also be removed from convenience binary of Weex
if needed.
