Subject Re: [compress] Including ASL Code from other projects
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2009 19:29:07 GMT
Well, are we protecting ourselves here?  Just putting the ASL2 license
mumbo jumbo in the header of a file doesn't exactly mean you have the
right to license the code at all (perhaps your employer "owns"
anything you write?).  I'd feel safer with some a more formal code
grant, but that's just me.
