	IANAL - but I suspect this process very much depends on the license in
question, and the contribution policy for firebird - as an aside the:

	has an unhelpful 404 for "contributing patches" today.

	Either way this is certainly -not- the right forum to discuss legal /
licensing questions.

	As a general yard-stick, (and depending on the project) - encouraging
those who create the patches to submit them up-stream themselves is a
good idea. We really do want to get these things up-stream - so it's a
great initiative Julien.
