Subject Re: [ALL][VFS] Third party java library.
Date Fri, 17 Dec 2004 17:21:09 GMT
Hey Mario,

With the odd wording of the Novell licence, it looks like we might
have to get permission on a case by case basis to make sure the
library isn't early-access etc.

Do you have a url for the project at Novell that supplies the
njclv2.jar? I need to pass something on to the legal team.

Thanks,

Hen
