IANAL but ..
PHPCR is currently licensed under the Apache 2.0 license, which is not compatible with GPLv2, it is however GPLv3 compatible.
At any rate Drupal for example is currently GPLv2+ which would not work.
I am also not sure how this actually plays out with PHPCR ODM being LGPLv2.1.
For Midgard I am not sure which parts are LGPL and GPL, but we might be in trouble there too.
At any rate the question is now if we need to change the license to MIT, dual license to MIT .. or something else ..
We made the license Apache a while back believing this would be liberal enough and would ease bringing things under the Apache project if necessary. Furthermore the JCR guys have gone on record to say that JCR is also Apache licensed.
Tricky business ..

i am no fan of license discussions. i know it is relevant but its not
i am ok to dual and triple license if this helps anybody to use phpcr.
do we need an ok from the jcr license owners for that?

i dont think we necessarily have to .. even as we did reimplement their API there were a lot of changes both on the interface and the implementation level. but it does turn something that is totally clear into a bit of a grayish area.

Midgard itself is LGPL.
* GLib - LGPL
* Libgda - LGPL
* Libxml - MIT
