And thanks for reviewing out dev snapshot build.

We've tried to publicly document what we did to clean up the code on our wiki:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/IP_Clearance

By "clean up" we mean that OpenOffice.org consisted of code that we
received under SGA, but it also had some dependencies on 3rd party
open source libraries.  We've gone through each one, and removed the
ones that had incompatible licenses.  In almost every case we were
fortunate to find a good substitute with a compatible license.

Good to know.

OK.

OK.

Yes, thanks.
