The initial code was based on Apache Nutch so all the IP were cleared
there. The modification that have been done by myself are all done as
ASF committer. There have been code adopted from Henri Yandell patch to
HttpComponents which as well had been cleared by himself as ASF
committer. The second version was a rewrite from various ASF committer
or based on patch submission where we have a software grant. 

IMOH there are (and never have been) no issues about IP clearance but
ATM AFAIK there is no-one actively pursuing the matter. Any help highly
appreciated.

Thanks for bringing this up Doug/Board.

curious what, if anything, is blocking Droid's IP clearance process and requested that I look
into this.  Is someone actively pursuing this?  If so, are there any difficulties in obtaining
the clearance?
