> Hi folks,
> I just came across some folks who have heavily modified and extended an existing ASF
project and they now considering "open sourcing" their code base either under GPL or LGPL.

> Technically it seems to be a fork and so my question is - is such a fork possible under
a different license?
> Thanks in advance
