Huh. The thing about that thread that surprises me isn't the suggestion to become an AOOO contributor and help if they really care (I mean, really, what else would you expect on an open source project?).

It's the implication that the licensing issues being discussed will somehow magically be addressed when the release is cut and there's a tarball of Apache Officially Blessed Source Code. I mean, making a release includes a *VOTE* by an Apache IPMC and PMC. And holding a vote is a sure way to determine if any unauthorized relicensing of LGPL code into Apache License code by changing the license headers occurred, right?
