any volunteer to clarify this?  Tim, I have put you in BC (to leave the
spammers alone) because you also worked on this package (so you might
know some facts) and are interested.  Any help to make the Copyright
more clear would be welcome.  (ftpmaster is obviosely working on the
New queue for our packages - so lets support them actively)

Kind regards
