What should one do with requests like this? If I recall correctly, I
already once have told these people that they don't need any more
permissions than what they already have to redistribute GIMP, and that
even if they did need some permission, I am not entitled to give them
it on the behalf of all the copyright holders...
Could perhaps Sven or Mitch contact them, in German, explaining the
situation? ([EMAIL PROTECTED])
The web page they refer to has the possibility to answer "I agree and
grant permission for the CD mentioned above as well as any CDs in
future regular issues of c't and/or c't-specials. This permission is
valid until revoked" which sounds kinda the correct choice, but on the
other hand it says "I confirm that I own the rights required to give
this consent", which I don't think I do.
