That is a nonsense.

JBoss is stalled because it depends on a package with:

- incompatible license
- six years old
- dead upstream

This is true (well, the problem is that there is no applicable and valid
license, not so much that it is incompatible), no matter how absurd it
might seem.

In general, Java licensing is... poor at best. This is admittedly a
rather confusing case, but still.
