[ClusterLabs Developers] License for fence-agents

Sorry, I meant Apache v2, I was mentally confusing it with GPL v3.
The licensing concern is not actually mine, I'm just the one that was appointed to follow up on the topic. I know we can use the agents under GPL just fine (and I've already contributed back to the GitHub repo). The concern was if we ever wanted to bundle the fence-agents code with our Apache-licensed project for distribution in the future. That can't be done under GPL.
Personally, I don't see it as an issue at all. There's really no need to bundle the software when the receiving party can just grab their own copy from GitHub anyway. But I was asked to look into it.
Thank you all for your replies!

Would you please provide a reference to such a license?

Quick web search suggests this is a typo, furthermore used uniformly,
likely a result of search&replace.  If that's the case, I am curious
about the original desired license(s).

(And perhaps, what's wrong with copyleft licenses while these
likely maximize the collective benefit without compromising
the basic freedoms...)
