Subject Re: [compress] Including ASL Code from other projects
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2009 05:33:56 GMT
I have spoken to the developers and they are willing to sign the
software grant and donate the code to the compress component if they
are mentionend in the code (guess NOTICE file would be ok too).
Can one please give me detailled instructions how too proceed?

Guess they have to sign this:
http://www.apache.org/licenses/software-grant.txt
and fax it to whom and with which number?
