      It is only necessary to transfer rights for the package, the
      core code, and any new code produced by the project.

The distribution includes the JaxMe jar files and the following files:

Proper license files are also included. The build process (test
case) depends on hsqldb.jar, which is not included in the distribution,
for license issues.
