Jukka Zitting commented on PDFBOX-420:
--------------------------------------

If you can, please try contacting Pin Xue again to get his confirmation on contributing this
under the Apache license.

How/why did you work together on this? If you share an employer and wrote this patch at work,
then an OK from your manager is typically enough and often necessary, depending on the copyright
terms of the employment contract.

How much of the code is written by Pin Xue? We can include the code under the BSD license,
but that requires special mentioning in the LICENSE and NOTICE files that we and all the downstream
projects need to worry about. So if it's just a few lines of code then we're probably better
off by just rewriting them if we can't get an OK for the Apache license.
