from https://www.locationtech.org/charter in "IP Management" section:

*"... The group will follow the Eclipse Foundation's IP due diligence
process in order to provide clean open source software released under
licenses approved by the group and the Eclipse Foundation Board of
Directors. Approved licenses for this group include EPL, MIT, BSD, and
Apache 2.0. ...."*

So I understand that GPL is not welcome in LocationTech ;-)
