The Jakarta Commons Math project would like to incorporate some code 
from the JAMA matrix package <http://math.nist.gov/javanumerics/jama>. 
The web page includes the following copyright statement:

The sources include no copyright notices or @author tags. Is there any 
reason that we cannot incorporate code from these sources into Commons 
Math?

Thanks!

Phil
