Not only is that not being done, but if you follow the link to, for example,
"Learn more about XPlayer", you will land on an ASF page all about XPlayer
that has a License link that displays the Apache License 2.0, whereas
XPlayer is, as I understand it, GPL licensed. That seems like a pretty
serious no-no to me.
