Subject Re: FW: [DISCUSSION] How to deal with runtime dependencies
Date Thu, 11 Feb 2016 03:07:28 GMT
I've used this as reference previously:

http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#prohibited

Specifically this sentence:

"...For example, using a GPL'ed tool during the build is OK."

That would suggest that using GPL tools for build and test should be okay.

I'll let others address the distribution of optional components question in
great detail. My sense is this is primarily focused on how "optional" the
undistributable component is.
