Well, as you know, the only proved way to get code from
a CWS relicensed is to commit it to the tree and wait
for the ASF to make a release with it. Other alternatives
have to be arranged directly with the copyright owner.

Breaking the build or bringing stuff that doesn't work
is not acceptable so I would suggest you make available
the patch and give a couple of days before committing it
just to make sure there are no objections.

Of course you are a committer, so you can create a branch
if you want to do some special work on it before getting
it integrated.

best regards,
