Subject Re: License changes for Zeta (incubating)
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2010 03:53:11 GMT
I'll confirm that there is a software grant on file from ez-systems.no  
covering the software that's downloadable from svn.ez.no/svn/ 

So moving the copyright notice from each file and putting it into the  
repository in the appropriate place (NOTICE or LICENSE) can be done  
now. The zeta dev list can discuss the details of how and when to do
