(The keyword is: with right to sublicense.) Initially, my plan is to apply this approach to files that are present in the main tree (written by me) and modified in jumbo (currently by JimF or/and magnum).

We need to correct that. Otherwise we have the same kind of uncertainty (part of "collective work" or GPL'ed as "derivative work") that we did with HDAA_fmt_plug.c before Romain approved placing it under our current preferred license for such contributions. We need to ask Dhiru for the same thing (if he's the author). > Do i need permission from their authors? We need it. > do i need to release my contribution under bsd for nt ? Since Alain's contribution, which you modified, was public domain + fallback to cut-down BSD license, you can either do the same for your changes (as suggested above) or you can fully move to cut-down BSD license for your derived version. Either works for me. For ssha_opencl_kernel.cl, you don't specify any license, but you wrote that the code is based on someone else's - so we need to know what license applied to that code. Can you clarify this? Perhaps there are other files in your patches with unclear terms as well... We need to take care of them all. Thanks, Alexander
