Hello Niall,

   Thank - your comments have been very helpful.

   I've fixed & closed the two JIRA tickets you opened.

   To clarify - the entire project is available under the Apache
License.  I've updated those info.txt files to reflect that.  Sorry
for the confusion.

   Lastly, I've removed the set of pngs from the test image collection
that "collection_info.txt" described.  Those images weren't adding
anything significant to the tests, and I've been meaning to remove
them for a while.

   We are going to cut a new version of the release that reflects
these and other changes.  Voting will return to sanselan-dev@ before
it returns to general@.

Charles
