The press release doesn't say explicitly "open source licenses only", but since Google Code requires licenses to be open source we didn't really see the need to be that explicit ;-)
Anyway, to remove any confusion whatsever apache-extras will not allow proprietary licences. It will allow Free and Open Source licences that cannot be used for code hosted on ASF infrastructure - including one-way compatible licences such as the GPLv3.

In any case, my apologies for the misinterpretation, the item has been changed.

Thanks for dropping by with the good news. I'm relieved to hear Apache won't be delivering proprietary software.
