Andreas Lehmkühler commented on LEGAL-331:
------------------------------------------

Thanks [~fielding] for your point of view. 

Most of the stuff shouldn't be an issue, but there are some testfiles (see LEGAL-332) which
have to be removed before transfering the content to our repository. IMHO we must not import
the history as those files would be available through that history. Am I right?

> Levigo has donated their JBIG2 plugin to the  PDFBox PMC, see PDFBOX-3906. The origin
code resides in a github repository containing the whole history of the plugin.
> It would be handy to include the history when transferring the code to our repository.
But I'm not sure if that is legally possible as the software was gplv3 licensed before it
was donated to us.
