Is forking of an Apache project under a different licence (GPL/LGPL) possible?!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LEGAL-70
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-70
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Siegfried Goeschl


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

Siegfried Goeschl
