An official policy listing how to treat each license is in the works. 
However, I think the clear consensus is that at least for BSD licenses 
there is no issue with incorporating that code into an Apache project. 
There is an ongoing discussion on whether it is best to license that code 
out from Apache under the ASL or to pass on the BSD license.
