I am afraid you might have mixed up some information, or I am missing

In this lists somebody submits new licenses (legal texts, as opposed to
software products to which those texts are applied) to have them
approved against the Open Source Definition.

The Apache License v. 2.0 is already an approved license. You can use it
on any kind of product without the license becoming wanting approval. As
long as this license works for you, just use it, nothing else is required.

With best regards,


PS: since this is a moderated list, you will perhaps receive a number of
similar answers, none of the authors have likely read the others, so
it's not mobbing. Or perhaps the moderator will just cut them off
because redundant.
