Ah. Thanks for the reminder.

Do the deps have code that is less permissive than the Apache license?
e.g MPL or LGPL (or GPL!) ?

I believe we should have no problem with the svn tarballs themselves,
and will follow up on legal-discuss with that.

Note that archive.apache.org is not mirrored. The mirroring system
applies just to current releases.
