There are a few parts in the olio distribution that we need to consider:

1. Olio code written in Ruby that we wrote and license under Apache  

2. Unmodified third party Ruby code under the Ruby license. The  
resolved.html says we can have an external dependency on these files.  
We just cannot distribute them. So we need to remove the files from  
the distribution and provide instructions for our users how to obtain  
and install them. I'd guess that the Rails implementation (assuming  
that we depend on some specific unmodified version of Rails) falls  
into this category.

Verbatim is preferred, as we can't assume that a link can be followed  
just because a user has obtained the distribution.

RIght. No matter how many times I read them, I cannot remember the  
rules without having them in front of me.
