>                 Key: LEGAL-336
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-336
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>          Components: Policy Question
>            Reporter: John D. Ament
>            Priority: Major
>
> 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?
