Good question.


a) original author signs an Apache CLA and submits the PHP code as
"please add xyz feature; here is a php example that can be ported"
b) original author relicenses under AL 2.0 or similar license.

Both of these assume that the original author is the only author on
the product. I've seen relicensing fall over because other's code was
also in there.
