Andreas,

So I wanted to dig into the code base further before responding.

It seems like you've already done the work that is intended to be done once
the code is imported to an ASF repo.  As a person outside the project, I
have no idea who 'hennejg' is other than matching a committer on file.
Likewise, I'm not sure their relationship to 'levigo holding GmbH' however
they were the copyright holder.  Ideally we would want to see something
from that company indicating they are willing to license the code to the
ASF.  Since the code was GPL previously, I believe we would expect one of
the two forms I mentioned to be filed.  If we have an SGA, or we have some
confirmation that ICLAs are already on file for all of the contributors,
that would help here.

John
