Sounds good. Do I need to put more explicit into the proposal draft?

So, legal is working on this, but it'll be a few days (at least) until 
we have a final answer. Rest assure that we'll come up with a resolution 
that satisfies everyone (that's what my VP told me).

Ah yeah. There's a lot of interesting code in this project :). There is 
also a bunch of code that, ehm, needs much polishing, and there's 
definitely room to make lots of additions and improvements. I think 
it'll be a fun project to participate in, and I'm sure we can mutually 
learn from each others experiences.

We already got two new mentors signed up (thanks to your posts to the 
httpd devel list I think). So, we're up to three now, how many do we 
need to be considered for a vote? Is there anything else missing?
