You are constrained to release it under a licence that is compatible with
the mindterm license, which looks GPL-ish, but I'd need to read more. If it
is GPL then you can only release your app under GPL too.

This does not reduce the value of the submission, but prevents it ever going
into the apache codebase. My recommendation is to start a project on
sourceforge and we can link to it from the ant docs/web site.
