VM is MIT (see current SVN sources). Image is Apache.

Because we only ship the binary image and no sources in the OLPC OS  
builds, we could already release this under Apache license. However,  
Kim Rose is sending out contributor forms at the moment, all  
contributions since Squeak 1.1 are going to be MIT which is  
compatible with Apache. Once this is finished, source code will be  
fully under Apache, too, and we expect this to be finished before the  
first real OLPC laptop ships.
