    Thanks.

    I've already done this locally.

    This is what I thought.  I just wanted to make sure that making a
release that included ALv1.1 would be Ok.

    Are there four licenses NPL 1.0, MPL 1.0 (both not OK),
NPL 1.1 (unknown status), MPL 1.1 (is OK) or was there a typo
above?

    Also you say this isn't a show stopper but you want to get it
clarified.  Does this mean that as far as you are concerned I can
go ahead, or should I wait on the clarification?

    Yes, it is, I forgot to include it in the log message (I would
have updated the log entry if we were using SVN ;).

    Do I really need to run another vote on batik-dev?  Cameron
has already given his +1 twice.  BTW the mod-box doesn't seem to
be collecting mails for April...
