OpenNLP and Maxent started their live at sourceforge
under the LGPL license, quite a while later we noticed
that this makes it difficult for Apache projects to use
OpenNLP. We changed the license to AL 2.0 and
removed all LGPL licensed dependencies.

The old versions are still licensed under LGPL and
the new versions are licensed under AL 2.0.
