I have no problem doing so. I have a more general question, though. I've
never seen the point of signed CLAs. If a project doesn't want to take
copyright ownership (as the FSF does), then why isn't it enough to ask
contributors to license their contributions under some open source license
compatible with the project's (preferably the same one)?
Indeed, ISTR you making this very point in the past.
What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the John Cowan
sound of a [Ww]all that people have stopped cowan at ccil.org
banging their head against? --Larry http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
