There have been some talks within ObjectWeb community to see
how we (the OW community) can collaborate more with Apache and Geronimo.

License is one of the main issues what we have to solve but I do believe
that we can find a good solution for both Apache and ObjectWeb.
After all, lots of OW projects already use some Apache code.
Why not thank Apache back by enabling its projects to use some OW code?

ObjectWeb and Apache have some complementary projects and I personally
think that both community can benefit from better cooperation.
ASM would be a good start.

So the licensing issue is open but OW community is carefully
considering it.
