Either way, the AL is applied.  The only difference between the mailing list
and JIRA is that JIRA allows us to place an explicit notice at the point of

The underlying problem is the FSF claim that the AL and the GPL are not
compatible.  The ASF response to this claim is
http://www.apache.org/licenses/GPL-compatibility.html.
