Subject: Distribution of sample files in Apache open source project
To: eqrtechnicalcompliance@ferc.gov
Cc: Commons Developers List <dev@commons.apache.org>


We at the Apache Commons CSV project (https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-csv/) would
like to distribute the following two files in our project:

- http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/eqr/soft-tools/sample-csv/contract.txt
- http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/eqr/soft-tools/sample-csv/transaction.txt

As linked from the page http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/eqr/soft-tools/sample-csv.asp

We would attribute the source of the files to FERC like this: https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/commons/proper/csv/trunk/NOTICE.txt

Our project is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license: https://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0

Do we need permission from FERC to distribute these file? If so, can we get permission and

Thank you,
Gary Gregory
