I am not sure I can answer this question completely. Let me explain
the context a bit.
Castor was initially developed by a company named 'Intalio', and
subsequently released as open source with a BSD-style license.
In the early years after 2000, more and more employees of Intalio quit
their job, and as far as I know, Intalio sort of vanished.
Myself and a few other committers at that time decided that any new
code contributed should carry an Apache license.
I assume that this explanation doesn't really address your question,
but I could offer to have a word with a contact at Intalio (yes, the
company seems to have been resurrected, but with a completely
different business focus).
Let me know whether I should go about this.
