Great news thanks for following through and keeping us up to date on this.

Bigbang is best.  We'll simple replace the trunks with these branches
instead of merging.

I think this information was in those old notice files that were in
subversion.  I don't know anymore off the top of my head.  I think we
probably fixed most of these issues - namely in the kerberos module of
ApacheDS.  Emmanuel might also have a better memory than I here.  Emm what
do you think are we clear here?

For the time being can you consult the original NOTICE files in SVN for this

That's great Dave thanks!
