You little fraudster you.

The mind boggles on whether retards like you are spliffing before posting.

GPL is not compatible with how Apache wants to run its
open source projects. So it can't use the GPL because
it can't comply with GPL terms.
Some day it should make the effort to comply itself
with GPL3 - it will do them a world of good.
Otherwise, like BSD software that becomes less free as time
goes by, accomodating every non GPL project
may also infect Apache core projects.
