	Goodness; yes - that thread is still on my festering and ever growing
list of things to do ;-) If I remember you wanted the ability to assign
rights to the Document Foundation for your contribution but I'd like to
explore that some more.

	Well; we need to discuss that. We are asking for the MPL/LGPLv3+ dual
license from everyone. Having uniform licensing is really important.
Without it we will collect large numbers of individuals insisting on the
right to veto future LGPL version (eg.) which is highly sub-optimal, as
IIRC you agree.

	AFAIR we were going to have a call to straighten this out before
getting you git push access, and then I dropped the ball: sorry for

	In general, I'm not eager to see any more code / patches merged under
the LGPLv3-only, and we'll need to go and clean up our story there - but
I'd love to talk about it.

	Can you mail me privately with your phone # & availability (again,
sorry) ? :-)
