Subject Re: LGPL code in Apache?

Panos had gotten permissions for all the stuff that was in xinetd before I
started the other ports (FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris [by Jan Wedekind],and IRIX. I
and later Jan are both working under the structure of the copyright that Panos
originally used. Snprintf() and cvt() were there already when I started hacking
the first BSD port. Nothing's been added from GNU since then by Jan or I.
