Subject Re: OT: Re: a licensing question
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2003 10:42:54 GMT
Check the mail archive of general@jakarta.apache.org for the recent
discussions re the maven jar repository.  Somewhere in there you will find
details of an asf mailing list dedicated to discussing licensing issues (a
search for "licensing@" should turn something up).

HTH,

Scott
