Indeed if someone could distill the discussion, I am all in favor of
having it documented in IFOSSLR (speaking as a member of the Editorial

have not had time to read each and any messages. The reference to the
MXM license I submitted for approval some months ago did not escape me,
though. ;-)

With best regards,
