      Description

      per update resolved legal:

      CAN APACHE PRODUCTS INCLUDE WORKS LICENSED UNDER THE JSON LICENSE?

      No. As of 2016-11-03 this has been moved to the 'Category X' license list. Prior to this, use of the JSON Java library was allowed. See Debian's page for a list of alternatives.

      I'm not sure when this dependency was first introduced, but it looks like it's currently used in a few places:
