Not yet, but apparently the legal person was away most of last week  
and this week. I'll do some more prodding to get some answers here.

On a positive note, we got our report back from the 3rd party who did  
a code review for IP ownership. There are a few "issues" we'll need to  
resolve, but nothing major and we'll obviously have them resolved  
before we push the source. The only "major" piece that might need to  
get removed for now is SNMP support.

One question though to the Incubator people: Several of the issues  
reported are around us using GNU configure, which is under GPL. How  
does other apache projects deal with this? Is it just a matter of not  
checking in the generated configure scripts, and expect people to use  
the .in, .am etc files to re-generate the scripts? This doesn't sound  
right though, because I'm pretty darn certain when I build Apache HTTP  
for example, I don't have to run autoconf or automake.
