Oolite <http://oolite.org> is currently undergoing review, and a
stumbling block is in its use of its own copy of libjs. An upstream
developer is participating in the review and has a clear explanation
for the rationale:


libjs is not exposed to any network interfaces, so the risk is
probably quite low -- the alternative is to wait until xulrunner 2.0
is released (the previous stable version has problems in its scripting
mechanism and most third-party add-ons for Oolite do not work on it

Would it be alright in this case to bundle libjs?

PS the "no bundled libraries" draft
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:No_Bundled_Libraries) does
not clearly indicate which mailing list is to be used
