Subject Problem with licensing of a file

As most of you probably know, Jetspeed needs several jars for operation

activation.jar   (jaf java activation framework, 
http://java.sun.com/products/javabeans/glasgow/jaf.html )
jdbc-se.jar     (jdbc 2.0 standard extensions, 
mail.jar        (Java Mail API, 

The Apache Software Foundation is *not allowed* to redistribute those 
packages, and there is a discussion in the community and jakarta-general 
lists about the issue. See, for instance:


and surrounding messages.

The activation.jar was removed by David february last year.

Now, I have stated that I will remove the remaining two briefly, and add 
pointers in the documentation to ensure that people knows they are 
missing, and that they must be downloaded separately and placed in the 
lib dir (or specified via maven).

Just a prior notice, in case someone objects, or has better ideas.

I'm also trying to grok maven to use it for the list, but it will take 
some time since I understand ;-)
