You can’t include compiled code in a source release, if you do it doesn’t meet the definition
of open source. There been some discussion on this list on how to handle gradle wrapper in
the past, it’s not nessacy to include the gradle jar. IMO Apache Bean shouldn't be including
jars in their source release, but that’s for them to sort out. There is an unresolved legal
JIRA about this. [4] I'd go with Marks suggestion in that thread unless it gets resolved in
another way.

If something is bundled you need to include it’s license and a general license may not be
enough. [1]

For instance if you include bootstrap, you also need to include a license for normalise.css
and the fonts that come along with it. A worked example may help. [2] [3]
