Thank you! Interesting.
I wonder if they obtained an Apache wide / HTTPD PMC wide license for 
the product or how they dealt with this. We may ask them!

The problem with apache is that to be able to release something from 
apache the release manager need the tool to make the release.
Not every release manager use windows at all, and none of them has a 
license of this commercial products, so we have to understand how other 
Apache projects dealt with this.

Thank you,
