Sounds promising. Simon

Quoting Jonathan Levinson <>:

I'll forward your e-mail to management and tell them there are some
license agreements we need to sign.

We are an international company, and need to support non-Western
documents including Greek, Thai and Chinese, amongst many others.  We
have technical people at work in every area of the globe.

That is good news indeed. Thanks to Intersystems for this

Note that you need to sign an Individual Contributor License Agreement
(ICLA), and most conveniently your company needs to sign a Corporate
Contributor License Agreement (CCLA), see, before FOP or any other ASF
project can accept your code contributions.

One area in which FOP needs more work is the compliance with the FO
spec, versions 1.0 and 1.1, see

Another area where FOP needs more work is support for non-Western
documents. I do not know where the problems are, but it probably does
not work right now. Ideally, we would have contributors from regions
with such problems.
