Dan is correct; we cannot check CPL-licensed software/files into Apache.

For example, we couldn't check DITA Open Toolkit files into the derby 
svn repository because it is under CPL. We discussed the issue with the 
DITA OT developers and they additionally released it under the ASL 2 at 
the end of August.
