You need to research the licencing a bit. The Apache licence is far more
libreral than LGPL. There have been questions on LGPL's validity for
something like Java, it's validity for something like images would seem
non existent.

Possibly you might want to consider the various documentation licences.
They may be a better fit than the source code licences like the ASF

documentation and images]

Definitely not Jakarta. It's nothing to do with Java. Equally, it's
pushing it as to whether it's to do with Commons as it's not something
that is coming from the Apache commiting community [ie) another Apache

Whether artwork is something that fits in the Apache realm, I'll leave for
others to argue over. I see no blatant reason why it could not.
