O. Great page! We should add that to the debian-legal FAQ if there is such
a thing. It is a very good (definitive) reference to what licenses are and
which are not free and/or GPL compatible. (Although some people might be
offended by the very GNUish rhetoric on that page.)

But that page refers to the old Apache license which still had the original
advertising clause, not the new 1.1 version. I will forward my analysis to
RMS and ask him if he could review it for inclusion on that page.
