If you are re-using code from one Apache project in another then that is
fine. You can just copy the classes and modify as you require. It is
always a good idea to reference where the classes come from somewhere
but it is not required.

Tomcat for example includes code copied from DBCP, Digester and
FileUpload to name but a few.
