The ECL v1.0 was discussed a long time ago in a debian-legal
My own contribution to the thread is this

On the other hand, I haven't found any debian-legal discussion about
the ECL v2.0.

that it

| This patent license and the indemnification clause in section 9 make

I haven't found the time to analyze the ECL v2.0 and compare it with
the Apache License v2.0, though.
Maybe this can be done on debian-legal...
