Subject Re: Move log4cplus' license to ASL 2.0.
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2009 02:55:04 GMT
Václav,
If your only intention is to make the codebase compatible with GPL,
perhaps you don't know that according to FSF the Apache License v1.1
can be used in Gnu GPLv2 work. I assume (but that may not hold true)
that it is also be compatible with GPLv3.

Cheers
Niclas
