The copyright is still owned by Day.  What Day did was license
a work to the ASF which now contains both Day's copyrighted material
and a collective work copyright for Apache.

Regardless, if a tool was used to translate Java code to C#,
the copyright on the C# code must be the same as the Java code
because tools do not author.  That is copyright law.  It is the
same as the translation from Java source to jvm byte codes, or
from C to binaries.
