Hi everyone,

As Andreas demonstrated, it is not obvious that you can relicense code 
you've written just because you wish to. If you were employed at the 
time of writing the code, it may (or may not) be copyright your 
employer, and in some countries this is the case by default.

Sounds to me like gathering all the employment dates of everyone on the 
wiki might be a bit too public, what do people think? I was just 
starting to make a page to gather this information when the thought 
occurred to me...

A question to the board: do you agree this would be a good time to get 
detailed legal advice on how to go about relicensing the rest of Squeak 
so that the move is legally valid?
