Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduate Beehive into a TLP
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2005 23:49:12 GMT
Yes the current discussion on legal-discuss is wrt wss4j, but the
question for beehive was more general: are there any patents that have
been explicitly granted for the use of Beehive? For example, have BEA
issued any "licenses" to Apache with respect to stuff that Beehive
implements?

Regards,

Simon
