Is it possible the page you have mentioned applied to GPLv2 and earlier?

This is fundamentally an ASF policy question, not a license compatibility question. 

The following describes the criteria used by the Legal Affairs Committee when evaluating licenses
that can be included as a dependency by an Apache product:

http://apache.org/legal/resolved.html#criteria

The following list documents the licenses which may not be included in an Apache product:

http://apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-x

In some instances, there are ways that these dependencies could be added by users as an optional
feature of an apache project:

http://apache.org/legal/resolved.html#optional

Hope that helps.
