an Apache licensed Java implementation."
Sincerely, Rjack :)

You little fraudster you.

The mind boggles on whether retards like you are spliffing before

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

"Free" as "free as a bird" to use the offered copyrights as you wish
-- like in BSD or MIT licensed software.

"Restricted" as in GPL'd software. Richard Stallman usurped and
bastardized the MIT license into the GPL while at MIT.
