No, MPL is not "ASF-style".

That "FAQ" document is not yet public, though
Forrest and other committers have had a preliminary
look at it.

It is coming to the legal-discuss mail list
soon. ASF committers can join, others can
read the public mail archives.

I am not going to say anything to pre-empt
that FAQ.

Back to the search definitions ...

Are those definitions actually licensed?
You will need to find out if you want to
propose their direct inclusion in Forrest.
