Re: [jgit-dev] Curious about including the jgit jar in my open source app - but license is throwing me...

No, that's fine - really appreciate it... I'll probably look for another library...

However, what y'all did is super nice...

I see this verbiage:  Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the
above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer
in the documentation and/or other materials provided with
the distribution.

My question is, since I am using the jar file and it will be distributed
with my app (and only used by my app), do I need to someplace/somehow list
the copyright info?

Simple answer, yes.

Long answer, you may wish to consult your own legal advice. We can't
possibly evaluate all conditions for you.
