There are *still* people that have code in the system and haven't  
signed and sent in the licensing form.

You can see a complete list of initials and the names we believe  
attach to them, a list of missing email addresses and get a copy of

Oh, and I *think* that strictly speaking we're not in the business of  
relicensing the system as MIT; Apple relicensed the 1.1 release under  
the Apache 2.0 license and we are trying to get everything added  
subsequently to be under MIT. So far as I can work out that means the  
*system* as a whole will be legally Apache 2.0 but I am not a lawyer  
and I don't even play one on TV.
