I have no problem with my code being part of SpamAssassin under the Apache
Software Foundation.  However, the code in question is a one line rule.  I don't
think I can really claim copyright over something as trivial as that.  The costs
involved in faxing a page long distance are more than the code in question.

Please consider this note as my permission to keep the rule included in
SpamAssassin.  If you _really_ need a signed document, let me know.
Comment 2 Justin Mason 2003-11-03 11:57:38 UTC
Yeah, the legal side of things is very clear: it requires a signed doc.
Blame international copyright law.  (we certainly are!) :(

We're investigating using a sign/scan/email mode, instead of requiring
a faxed page, if that would be easier...
Comment 3 Robert James Kaes 2003-11-03 12:40:39 UTC
Sign/scan/email would be infinitely better for me.  Let me know when it's
available and I'll sign and email the information.
