I was trying to find a way to solve the licenses conflicts with the ExtJS
guys. And now I need to back to you guys, what could you say about this?:

You can distribute Ext JS with a ZPL extension, but Ext JS must remain
clearly GPL.  It's two licenses side by side.  So if you 'package' Ext with
the ZPL extension, and developers download the package with the expectation
that the whole is ZPL licensed, that is a problem.  If licensing on the SVN
can include both ZPL and GPL, then that could work.

I'm not sure if that it's possible in svn.zope.org
