Noel's right.
This needs to be sorted by the only people who konw the truth.
If there is any truth in the claim that any LGPL code has been re-licenced
it should be brought to the PMC's attention.

There are two possible outcomes here,
1/ the ASF can truthfully claim (or defend the claim) that there is no code
in geronimo
2/ The ASF attempt to defend the claim and are proved wrong, then all hell
breaks loose.

I'd urge every contributor to consider this very carefully.
