Since the software has been developed by only two persons, both in paid
employment, and the their employer has a declared interest in entering
the Apache Incubator, I see no problem concerning the re-licencing.

Although I am no lawyer, in my understanding the database is not part of
the software and therefore the licence of MySQL (or any other database)
is no subject here. Maybe someone with legal know how might clarify this
