Some of you may have noticed that Greg Stein, a member of the Apache
Software Foundation Board of Directors has joined this list and offered to
answer any questions.  Please feel free to ask him about anything that is on
your mind.  He would be a better person to answer, since I'm new to all this
Apache stuff myself :-)

Thanks for the great email, Allen, and for the shout-out. Yes, I'm
here listening. Most people at Apache are not familiar with this
community, and so I feel it is important to listen and lurk here to
get a better understanding. Sure... I can also answer questions, and
would be more than happy to do that. In any discussion threads that
may pop up, about the Apache work, I'll also attempt to fill in blanks
where I see them.


Most of us do indeed like to retain the ownership ourselves, but I don't
personally have any problems with reusing my translations etc in software.

People take great pride in contributing and want to be credited for what
they achieve. You might want to clarify the situation for the sceptics,
who don't want their code lost in some proprietary project not acknowledging
their work, but rather claiming it as their own.
