Subject Re: XSLT code using LGPL is OK? (fwd)
Date Sat, 05 Nov 2005 07:32:01 GMT
Thanks Henri!

Can I forward the answer to the lenya devel? If not posible to dev@lenya 
then can forward it to lenya PMC?

I have another question, seems like this code is dual Licensed. The 2nd 
license is: Sun Industry Standards Source License Version 1.1 (see 
below). Is this license also forbidden?

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo.
