I _think_ that, as the current piece of code is already licensed as GPL 
2.0, you may have to fill a software grant and fax it : 
http://www.apache.org/licenses/software-grant.txt :

"When an individual or corporation decides to donate a body of existing 
software or documentation to one of the Apache projects, they need to 
execute a formal Software Grant 
<http://www.apache.org/licenses/software-grant.txt> agreement with the 
ASF. Typically, this is done after negotiating approval with the ASF 
Incubator <http://incubator.apache.org/> or one of the PMCs, since the 
ASF will not accept software unless there is a viable community 
available to support a collaborative project."

To be double-checked !

There is something on the top if the page :
"Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this document for any 
purpose and without any fee is hereby granted, provided that the above 
copyright notice and this list of conditions appear in all copies"

So if the notice and conditions are available, there is no problem so far.

Hope it helps...
