We took this through legal-discuss last year, and it was approved as
falling under the "mere aggregation" clause of GPL, so not triggering
copyleft considerations.

See:  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-117

I'm not aware of any license changes on the dictionaries themselves in
this time period, but maybe others know more.
