Subject Re: [VOTE] Release of Apache Phoenix 4.16.1 RC2
Date Fri, 14 May 2021 01:06:31 GMT

As the note in the LICENSE file mentions, the library is used as a binary
dependency, included via maven. We don't build or distribute the source of
the library ourselves.

It's included as a dependency in the Maven pom for our "pherf" performance
benchmarking tool here [1] and used in two of pherf's JUnit test suites
here[2, 3]. The pom and test suite files themselves are of course
Apache-licensed. My understanding is that this binary usage should be fine
for a Category B license.
