Subject RE: GPL Code in GitHub

It provides some alternative authentication I think. It's not mine: I found it there and needed
to check out licensing issues etc. Most of it, in fact can be deleted.

But the point " There cannot be any GPL code in an Apache repository or in an Apache release"
is the stance we will take. It's safer that way. I don't want to undermine the reason for
choosing an Apache license in the first place, and that would happen if the repo contained
GPL stuff.

There cannot be any GPL code in an Apache repository or in an Apache release.

What are you trying to accomplish with the GPL code?
