Subject Re: User application code uploads to asf wikis
Date Mon, 01 May 2006 16:08:03 GMT
The user modified his wiki pages to license his sample code under the
lgpl. Since this code won't be checked into the derby repo and won't be
distributed in the derby software, I'll assume this isn't a problem
unless somebody says otherwise.
