Subject Re: Apache license question

Hi Gavin,

You may find the answers you need here: http://www.apache.org/licenses/ 
In particular, that page points at a useful FAQ: 
http://www.apache.org/foundation/licence-FAQ.html The FAQ addresses the 
issue of using the Apache license for your own code. The FAQ also has a 
very useful summary section titled "I'm not a lawyer. What does it all 
MEAN?". The FAQ page ends with the following paragraph:

"If you have a question specifically about the Apache license or 
distribution of Apache software, and it has not been answered by this 
page, you may send a message to <human-response@Apache.Org>  requesting 
clarification. Note: If you send a question that is answered by the 
information on this page your message may be IGNORED."

Hope this helps,
