GPL2 incompatible with Apache 2.0


Hi,

we would like to use cmocka in a GPL2 project and have already written
the test suite for it using cmocka. Then we found out that according to
the Apache Foundation and FSF [1] the Apache 2.0 and GPL2 license are
incompatible. Relicensing our project is not so easy and we might have
to switch our testing code to a different framework.

Is it possible to dual-license cmocka as MIT, BSD or GPL2? Or
explicitly allow usage in GPL2 projects?

Thanks,
Claudius Heine
