Subject Re: [Vote] Release Apache Pivot 1.1
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 15:15:08 GMT
I'd like a link to where the license is specified. The one on the
linked page only covers the documentation, not the library.

"A Sun Developer Network Site

Unless otherwise licensed, code in all technical manuals herein
(including articles, FAQs, samples) is provided under this License. "

(text above found on the bottom right corner of the page)

Unless you can find a license for this LiveConnect plugin that is
distributable by The ASF and its downstream users (non-exclusive, word
wide, etc), we'll have to consider this as a System Dependency, and
you won't be able to distribute it (which is why it is a System
Dependency: we can't distribute it, but you can link to it).
