    And the Cayenne code at ASF can be changed by the code owners to
    whatever license they wish if they wish as well. It has nothing to
    do with Apache.

    However, trying to get approval from every owner for the code they
    contributed is next to impossible in any large open source community.
     If you want, feel free to give it a try.

    However, the code that ASF has rights to and maintains must remain
    under the Apache license as that's the license under which the code
    was granted to ASF. Neither ASF nor people operating on ASF's
    behalf, can give you an LGPL license for Dataviews. You'll have to
    contact every person who contributed to DataViews to obtain it.
