Subject Re: [Help] Donating BSD code base to Apache as a base of an Apache lab project
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2007 21:29:30 GMT

Depends, however the simplest is to contact the authors of the code and 
get them
to fill out the Apache Software grant form. This allows for it to be 
relicensed by
the ASF. It also makes sure that the authors are actually permitting the 
to ASL.
