I thought there was a "rule" that Apache projects don't "take" code,
regardless of license.  IOW, that every line code must be "donated" to the
ASF via SGA or CLA.  That would imply that unless the contributors for
every line of code in the incoming the code base have documented their
donation, that the code base will need documentation (via LICENSE and
maybe comments in the files and headers) as to what AL code remains
third-party and which is officially part of the ASF project.  Sure, the
fact that the code is under AL lets you include and modify, but I think
that without such documentation that code is "bundled" and third-party.  I
thought the default is that it isn't "included" and they need to state
that it is ok for it to be "included".

Otherwise, there's a pile of Google Code and GitHub projects I'm going to
grab for my project.
