Hi Andrea,

Thanks for all the work you've put in, i'm really grateful.

Yes, I've gone for the Apache License. Will have it integrated by mid
January (I'm rechecking the English and the German parallel).

I'll ask the Arab students if they're willing to participate. At least one
of them well might be.

Is the Apache License by the way available in other languages? Or is it
best just to stick to English?
