Subject Re: Code covered by the Oracle grant
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2011 21:50:49 GMT
Besides the content Oracle owns, it seems we could just ask the other owners
to give the CWS's to the ASF. I mean, really... *somebody* out there holds
the copyright. We just have to determine who, and then ask. Some definite
legwork, but it seems doable.
