Scripts, source, and Reciprocal Licenses
Resolving as Won't Fix for now. The issue is no longer relevant to UIMA (see http://markmail.org/message/as3j5rrxkj7wmb35).
Inactive issue. I'll contact the UIMA project for an update on this issue.

I agree with Sam's comment above. It is much like the OSGi manifest insertion question in that the issue is the ASF releasing very tiny amounts of 'code' under a different license.
It also though links to the question on distributing Category B source code.
This sounds like a case where a narrow exception to allow this usage would be warranted. It would seem to me that the only potential users that might be affected by such a usage would not have any trouble with this, as it essentially is a 'platform' dependency akin to Java.
