Probably.  The last remaining task is to dig through the
list archives and actually construct a file to ship with the
code quoting the relevant email messages.  Any chance I
could get you to do that?

We clearly did horribly at setting up a contribution policy.
We should require either copyright assignment or an
appropriate license notice for anything committed to the XCB
repositories, else delete it and revoke committer privs.  If
we screw this up, the worst-case consequences could
potentially be kind of horrific.

Thanks much for your help!
