Subject Re: usage of text from spec document
Date Thu, 31 May 2007 02:49:02 GMT
Hi Karan,

I think we can take this discussion off the public lists.

I'll be happy to handle the request with Sun for you.

Can you please provide the text and diagrams that you would like to  
use and I can get approval for this usage.

Regards,

Craig
