Sorry, I thought you knew about the SGA(s) already. The files covered
by the Oracle SGA(s) are listed here:

That is what was granted to Apache.  Our 3.4 release was based on that
SGA, using the trunk version of those files.  That is what we released
under ALv2.  So in that sense the project very much has a clue what is
covered by ALv2.  We did an extensive audit of this.

I don't think it is advisable to speculate beyond that, concerning
terms on files not included in the SGA, or terms on other revisions of
those files.  What you need in that case is competent legal advice,
not some non-expert comment from someone on a mailing list.  Or talk
to Oracle.
