GPL just isn't as permissive as MIT and Apache (and BSD).

We would also need Rui to send an email to dev@ or give you permission to
forward an email to dev@ so we have his permission to have his code in our
repo in our official records.  If there is a lot of files, we might want
an official Software Grant document.  It also matters whether Rui plans to
do more development on the code outside of Apache.  Code bases really
imply communities and we don't want to fork a community or a code base.
Either the active community should move to Apache, or we should just
download Spark Material in our builds and installer and keep it
third-party.
