i'm not sure what the point is since AFAIK Firebird is licensed under a 
weak-copyleft license (some MPLv1 clone), but anyway:

i'm hereby clarifying that my CIB patches to Firebird are licensed under 
whatever license the upstream Firebird project uses and may thus be 
contributed upstream.

with regard to my Red Hat patches, my understanding is they were covered 
by Red Hat's usual policy of using the same license as the upstream 
project in question, so they may also be contributed upstream.
