If you didn't mean a separate SVN/Git repo on ASF hardware then you
didn't say it and I misunderstood.

The code in question, at is under the
GPL. The questions, as I read them, can be paraphrased as "can we
develop GPL code using ASF infrastructure for everything else", from a
community perspective I would say the answer is no (which you seem to
agree with). I don't believe the question is about being legal able to
use the code, the PMC is already using it.
