The difference is that no Apache project has a transitive dependency on a 
GPL'd project. The Apache PMC is responsible to ensure that no GPL code is 
sneaking in via transitive dependencies, and an improved reporting facility 
in Maven's release plugin would *really* be good, both for licensing and 
other concerns.
