Combined works that include GPLed code must be licensed as a whole under
the GPL, and then also under the conditions imposed by the non-GPLed
components. If all the conditions can be simultaneously satisfied, then
the combined work may be copied and distributed, otherwise it may not.

Don't you know that the ASF doesn't agree with the FSF regarding
purported "incompatibility" to the GPLv2?

So what?
