Subject Re: [VOTE] Response to JBoss Allegations

A couple of comments -

- as you list the exhibits, you simply say that JBG claims that our code 
is 'similar' to theirs, then having shown a common Apache ancestry for 
most them, you describe the assertion as 'invalid'. This isn't quite 
true. In fact the code is 'similar' due to the common ancestry. I think 
we should be absolutely clear that JBGs claim was that Geronimo code was 
'derived' from JBoss code with accompanying stripping of attribution and 
relicensing. Our findings can then be clearly seen to invalidate such 

- perhaps we should mention the recent 'Resolution of inconsistencies in 
CVS' thread, to head off further claims that may arise as a result of 
our openness regarding this issue.

above excepted - +1
