I'll have a look at my Jira's.

Tomcat distributions contain the same xsd's/dtd's that our specs  
contain. I've sent a note to dev@tomcat concerning their rights to  
redistribute the files. Initial response was that their use is  
covered by  original donation of Tomcat by Sun to the ASF. I don't  
have access to the Foundation documents that describe the donation.  
So, I have no way of verifying this...

Tomcat has placed an ASF license header on these schemas. But they  
also contain the Sun copyright and license restrictions. If I don't  
hear back from the Tomcat crowd, soon. I guess I'll follow up on

Since OpenEJB has never been through the incubator process, I'm not  
so sure about shipping a snapshot. I don't think incubator would be  
too happy about that. I have some updates to openejb (to help get it  
ready for a release) which I hope to commit soon. I've sent a note to  
dev@openejb about getting openejb release ready... Hmm. I see that  
Yoko's M1 release vote is still running
