Hi Vince: Thank you for your kind reply. Please see my writeup on ASL at http://www.twincling.org/node/277 While i understand ASL, i'm keen to know what are the technical deviations (if any) in the BSD licsense followed by FreeBSD project. eg. if i write a device driver and release it under ASL 2.0, can it legally make into FreeBSD project ? -- thanks Saifi. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
