Subject Re: [codec] submitting a StringEncoder
Date Thu, 12 May 2011 15:08:48 GMT
"Original code under GPL" is an IP issue. Namely that your Java code
must also be under GPL.

That subsequently can't be included in the Apache project, unless you
can get the original PHP author to change the license to something
listed here:
