OK, but why? If IBM wanted the Apache licence so they could keep going with proprietary Symphony, that would make sense. It doesn't matter whether I like it or not, it does makes sense. There's a clear argument there for why it would be in IBM's interest, if not anyone else's, to take the hit of having two separate forks of basically the same codebase.
But they're not keeping proprietary Symphony, they've just freed the lot. So, once again - what's the need to insist on an Apache licensed project?
