The key word here is "donated."  Right now there are licensing issues
within the Heron code base that need to be resolved.  However, all of the
originally developed code is Apache License, v2.  Twitter doesn't actually
own the copyright on all of the code (see [1] as an example), because of
that I'm not sure a grant would actually be valid at this time.  When
they're ready to remove the twitter headers in favor of the ASF standard
headers that would be when I expect a grant to be processed.
