I don't see why not...

We could not release any non-ASF compatibly licensed binaries  (e.g.  
(L)GPL) from Apache. However, this does not prevent us from providing  
build/configuration support for such an appliance. We could provide  
instructions on how to obtain incompatible licensed artifacts. Just  
need to make sure that users understand that their actions may have  
potential licensing implications.

If the *only* realization of this work requires the presence of (L)GPL  
artifacts, then, IIUC, it might need to be hosted outside of Apache.  
This would require some analysis on our part as well as a review on  

Regardless, assuming the work is useful to Geronimo users, I'd think  
we'd want to let Geronimo users know about it. We'd do this for any  
other Geronimo-related works, also... So, I don't see an issue with  
linking to and describing the project. "Documenting" the project might  
be another issue...
