The Geronimo community had every chance (and still has) to discuss the 
issue, one member of a community marking an issue as invalid does not 
mean discussion has to stop. Since everyone is a peer in an ASF 
community it's fine to question any decision and/or openly discuss it, 
for example the bug could have been re-opened. Hopefully each person 
brings valid technical reasons and the standard ASF consensus gathering 
can proceed to lead to a solution that works for all. Apache is a 
"do-ocracy" -- power of those who do.

This would not be acceptable to the ASF, code is released under the 
ALv2, not with any additional restrictions. See the current open letter 
to Sun, for example.

Maybe though there's a technical solution to this issue.
