Bug ID: 63084
           Summary: Change license to Apache license, Version 2.0
           Product: Analytics
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Kraken
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

There have been requests to re-license (part of) our analytics/kraken
repository under Apache License, Version 2.0.

Since the code of that repository lives in the Hadoop environment, where
basically everything is Apache License, Version 2.0, changing our
analytics/kraken repo to that license would help others to use and contribute
to our code. That would be a huge plus.

Also, (while most files come with GPLv2+) the repo itself is marked GPLv2
(no trailing +). This makes it hard for us to develop code from the code
samples of the documentation of the various projects, as those samples
are under Apache License, Version 2.0 (which is incompatible with GPLv2).
So the switch would also make our lives way easier as well.

The repository currently has only about a dozen different committers.
Most of them (former) WMF employees.
