Independent of the developers involved and the individual rights they might
have, I understood that the whole repository was Oracle's copyright
property and thus a copyright license from them was required for any member
of this or other projects to use code from any given CWS unless it had
already been integrated into AOO and thus fallen under the blanket grant
made by Oracle.

For the legacy Mercurial repository Andrea mentioned to be useful to future
developers I would expect the copyright status of the repo to thus need
clarifying, and I don't recall seeing a definitive statement.

There was a discussion in the pre-TLP archives (which I can't find any
more) listing interesting CWSes.
