Everything you contribute is done under the license agreement that you
said you'd stick to when you signed up to the CG [1].

IANAL, but I doubt that the FOP committers in the CG could contribute the
FOP test cases since they've signed over their 'copyright interest' in the
FOP code to the Apache Foundation already, and I really wouldn't want to
have to go through the xmlroff test cases to see which ones post-date my
working at Sun to see what could legally be relicensed to the W3C as a
contribution.

Regards,


Tony.
