We're voting on a source release here, and it's ASL licensed. What's the
licensing problem in releasing the ASL-licensed source?

In general, for any library we link to, someone could come along and
create a GPL equivalent, it's not really our problem. It's the
distributors problem, and when we create binaries - it's our
responsibility to comply with any licensed involved - but that's outside
this current vote/process.
