It's a mess. I believe the answer is GPL or CDDL+GPL, your choice. My
understanding is that CDDL+GPL is a commercial-friendly license, but
IANAL. Because I started the work while I was at Sun, those were the
only licensing options that wouldn't have required months of meetings
after which my request ot do something else would have been denied
anyway.

I can't decide, partly because IANAL, if my V2 rewrite can be released
under any other license. I'd prefer to use Apache or some other more
open license, but, sigh, really, I'd rather write code than f*ck about
trying to work out the licensing issues.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
