And the Cayenne code at ASF can be changed by the code owners to
whatever license they wish if they wish as well.   It has nothing to
do with Apache.

However, trying to get approval from every owner for the code they
contributed is next to impossible in any large open source community.
 If you want, feel free to give it a try.

However, the code that ASF has rights to and maintains must remain
under the Apache license as that's the license under which the code
was granted to ASF.   Neither ASF nor people operating on ASF's
behalf, can give you an LGPL license for Dataviews.   You'll have to
contact every person who contributed to DataViews to obtain it.
