The board voted on Thursday afternoon to accept the committee's
recommendations.  Thanks to everyone who commented on various
licenses.  In particular, I want to single out (in no particular
order) John Cowen, Ernie Prabhakar, Larry Rosen, Brian Behlendorf and
Rod Dixon for extra thanks for their years of active participation.

Hrm.  Can you really single out five people?  Wouldn't you have to
pentuple them out?
