It's been raised in a  previous OpenWhisk release vote. [1] and other project releases e.g.
[2[3], and it come quite a few times on this list, mostly around not including the jar but
also licensing aspects of it. This legal Jira may also help [4]. I don’t see how it can
be excluded, in a podling release it’s something to be fixed later (hence my +1 vote) but
TLP’s releases need to comply with licensing and ASF policy.

Is that all you need to do to comply with ASF policy? (Hint does it have a NOTICE file? Where
should all licenses be listed? How would a user know you’ve included that 3rd party code?)
