It has been pushed down several levels on my stack because of other 
emergencies. :-(

The basic effort requested by the Mozilla team is to contact each and 
every past contributor of Rhino (about 40 people) and ask for a license 
change and copyright reassignment, so that we have something 
ASF-distribution-compatible. Then, we also need to figure out how to 
re-integrate Chris' changes into the official trunk, on which Antonio 
should be working on through some students at his local university.

All-in-all, I'm a bit pessimistic about the chances for success if not 
more people join the effort. There's a willingness from the Mozilla 
front to relicense using a more liberal license, but the real work 
needs to be done by us, and is not to be underestimated.
