Hi Boris.

The author gave me permission to release it under Apache license.

If there is a way an Apache license can derivate to LGPL, there is a way to merge them together and possible the result will be LGPL. But I need to find out if the Apache license allows that.
I know that you can take something from the Apache license and make it GPL (and not the other way), but I don't know if it works the same with LGPL.

More information, links and suggestion are welcome.

Regards

The authour(s) can always relicense code how ever they like so if Eugene is OK with his changes being relicensed... Anyways can't hurt to ask.

Hi Dave

I know that, but first I want to have someone able to recompile it.  Apache is a very liberal license that can allows derivative works on LGPL and GPL, so I'm fine with it. Or I can even ask the author to relicense. But right now I want to have a way to recompile it and release it to the public.
