I think we can build non-epl but we are not allowed to distribute

The only relevant thing I can find is:

Hi Wim,

I always lived under the impression, that you can only build EPL code on
a HIPP instance. If this assumption is incorrect, all the better.
Otherwise, we (OSU support) can probably spin up one more VM on our
machine there.

Yes. Given that we already have our own website, builder, and test infrastructure, I don't see any advantages of creating/using a HIPP instance. And there are a lot of associated hassles if we were to do so (restrictions or complexity of distribution of non-EPL components, OSGi CT usage/testing, our support for other target platforms...e.g. Karaf, etc).


+1 for using existing builder/build infrastructure.
