The problematic files would be:

The code in libjcip-annotations-java is almost identical except by
the package under the classes are declared (net.jcip.annotations
instead of javax.annotation.concurrent), some comments and the
RetentionPolicy of the annotations (but this doesn't seem to be a
problem because the policy in libjcip-annotations-java is more

However, I think it would be easier if I can get the author to
relicense those classes. I'll try to get in contact with Brian Goetz.

Thanks for the pointer to libjcip-annotations-java.

If this fails, what do you suggest?
