Hi,

That would be compatible with our license. But what if they included GPL or CDDL licensed
software?

my own.

Nor should you if the files are not licensed that way.

The package as a whole is licensed that way. But you stated you didn’t not know how that
file is licensed it may be ALv2 or it may be something else. Just as it has different copyright
owner it also likely is under a different license, whose terms are very likely to be APv2
compatible, but may not be.

Thanks,
Justin
