Subject downloading external dependencies outside of
Date Mon, 27 Aug 2012 18:42:40 GMT

As a part of JSPWiki's July 2012 incubator report [#1], it was noted that
JSPWiki (incubating) should not ship external jars alongside with code.
This has been achieved in current trunk. However, as part of AOO community
graduation vote thread [#2] it was noted that:

" If you try to build from source the build system will download packages
from instead of from elsewhere or the mirrors.  That
violates infra policy."

Which is exactly what is happening to us: we download jars from Central as
much as possible but, as there are a few of them ([#3], [#4]) which are not
published in Central, we download them from These jar are
all AL compatible so, the questions are:

- where can we place them in order to not violate infra policy?
- could this be a -1 towards voting a release? how to proceed?

thx & regards,
juan pablo
