      Description

      The JCR API jar file is available under the terms of the Day spec license [1] and the addendum [2]. The essential part of the addendum says:

      In addition to the permissions granted under the Specification
      License, Day Management AG hereby grants to You a perpetual,
      worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable
      license to reproduce, publicly display, publicly perform,
      sublicense, and distribute unmodified copies of the Content
      Repository for Java Technology API (JCR 1.0) Java Archive (JAR)
      file ("jcr-1.0.jar") and to make, have made, use, offer to sell,
      sell, import, and otherwise transfer said file on its own or
      as part of a larger work that makes use of the JCR API.

      This is pretty much similar to the LEGAL-36 case where broad rights are given to redistribute unmodified versions of the file. The consensus seems to be that such dependencies are OK and can be embedded in binaries, but that such unmodifiable files should not be kept in our svn.
