Subject RE: [Fwd: png icons for apache]

Refer it to the ASF's legal team... I see no point, unless they
endorse the elimination of .gifs based on patent and licensing.
And if the ASF wants to fight the legal battle on principal, 
that's an ASF board decision with advise from counsel.

Or someone with a licensed copy of a Unisys licensed GIF file 
tool can reencode the files.

The entire thing strikes me as absurd... but it sure will hammer
home the advantages of open source when they and if they 
proceed to enforce the patent ;-)
