I think that's because the repository has code under multiple licenses, one of 
which is the APSL. They aren't claiming that everything in that repository is 
under the APSL, only that you need to join an "APSL Club" to see it. If you 
don't join that club, you can get the same GPL code elsewhere on the same 
site. Besides which, implementing a click-through on just parts of a 
repository would be a royal pain in the arse.

If the license says GPL then follow the GPL to your hearts content. Publish
