Certainly we are in that sense but I don't think that is the issue Geir
was trying to address.  (This certainly means we needed to meet the
license requirements for distribution - though IIRC they are fairly
minimal for these particular packages.)

The issue is whether the Apache Software Foundation is considered
to be formally responsible or if it is just something Geir is doing
personally.
