Hello,

Sylvestre and I are working on getting findbugs in Debian and Ubuntu.

In particular, this file is released under the Apache Software License,
Version 1.1:
http://code.google.com/p/findbugs/source/browse/trunk/findbugs/src/antTask/edu/umd/cs/findbugs/anttask/FindBugsTask.java

This file under the GPL-3.0+ license
src/gui/edu/umd/cs/findbugs/gui2/CloudCommentsPane.java

and the rest of the package under the LGPL-2.1 license.

Would it be possible to relicense these two files to get Findbugs in the
Debian archive ? (GPL and Apache 1.1 are incompatible license [1])

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks
