Hi Florent,

which does, I believe, apply explicitly apply to Calabash.

However, this does conflict slightly with the header that is attached
to (most of) the source files, which is:

 * Copyright 2008 Mark Logic Corporation.

I believe that Norm's said in the past that Calabash is licensed under
CDDL+GPL, which would make the source file header the correct
information, and that the "CDDL" part of the license is due to some
historic Sun licensing.
