Use of AMD's Aparapi libraries in Apache projects

Hi,

My name is Edward J. Yoon, a member of Apache Software Foundation. I recently considering to use of Aparapi, a Java bytecode to OpenCL conversion tool developed by AMD for support SIMD and GPUs in my (Java-based) open source projects (Apache Hama [1] and HORN [2]), but heard that Aparapi license is not suitable for inclusion in Apache products. Apache Software Foundation legal team advised me [3] as follow:

This license is not suitable for inclusion in Apache products.
We advise you contact AMD to seek a license change to one that would fit with the OSI definition.
Please reopen/contact on license-discuss if you would like to discuss further.

Can you allow us to include aparapi binary files, or give me some feedbacks?

2. https://github.com/apache/incubator-horn

3. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-268
