Can anybody tell me whether I can or not upload Java TV 1.1.1 sources (and recompiled classes) to Maven Central Repository?
I'm a TV application developer.
And I want to make a JavaTV artifact for development.
I read the license text, but I don't think I'm a layer.
Here comes what I want to do.
1. Download JavaTV 1.1.1 Source distribution.
2. Make an artifact only contains javax.tv.* and javax.media as JSR-927 specified.
3. Deploy it to the Maven Central Repository.
4. Use it for compilation.
I swear I won't touch anything.
