I certainly had understood the policy for website, Wiki and
even the extensions site is that we shouldn't be hosting
copyleft content. There might be a transitory situation during
incubation and some things are still to be decided but even you
have clearly stood in the position where any new content in the
Wiki, etc should be under AL2.

I am really not going into this discussion with you again.

I think the issue is very easy to resolve: drop the
tarballs from SVN and provide sufficient instructions so
that the people doing the builds can download the tarballs
themselves: we even have nice "fetch_tarball.sh" script to
do just that.

Pedro.
