We should, as a matter of course, be sure that all code in the codebase 
is clean.    All committers who contributed code : please review 
(mentally or otherwise) your contributions to be sure that there is no 
infringement of IP.  If there are offending pieces of code, lets just 
fix them.  There's no problem in honest mistakes.  If there are 
dishonest mistakes, you are in violation of the CLA that you signed.  
Let us know that so we can kick you out. :)

However, for the purposes of the letter from the JBoss Group LLC, we 
need to only show that the claims are not valid.  This won't stop the 
JBoss Group LLC from doing this again, but we'll have to deal with it 
if it happens.  It's a drag, but that's life, I suppose.

Re the reply - if we believe that all 4 issues are now covered, I'll 
make a summary response, and put in CVS for all committers to review.  
If there is consensus that the response is correct, we'll present that 
information to the PMC and board, who will take care of the official, 
formal response to the JBoss Group, LLC.
