Yep.  That's why I threw something out there....

Well.. :)  that would only work if we as individuals were  
contributing the code, individually or as a group.

Since the code was a work-for-hire produced by us and other people  
who aren't Geronimo committers while working at Gluecode and then  
IBM, the ownership is clearly IBMs, and I think that it would be too  
murky if we did anything other than whatever policy we decide on.
