Hello,

I'm not familiar with certificates of networthiness or other government requirements for software use. Do they only cover a specific version of the software? If so, and if the one you have is for an older version than the one you want to use, can you cite it in your request for an updated CON?

A Google search found this message about a CON having been obtained by the Army for Apache HTTPD Server 2.2.x:

Since version 1.7.0, Subversion is also part of the Apache Foundation, so perhaps it will help you to know that another Apache project has already been approved.

I'm not aware of a phone number for the Apache Foundation, but there is a central address:

Writing to the Legal Affairs Committee's mailing list might be fruitful:
