[This really belongs on prc@apache.org, not legal-discuss--please 
direct followups there]

My position has always been that we should not provide links for 
donating software licenses as there is no actual cost of materials to 
the company "donating" the software license.  Hardware and bandwidth 
donations, yes; software licenses, no.
