FWIW your private discussion (where Geir and me where CCed) was not a "crime"
(yes I saw the smiley!). The ASF understands how hard it can sometimes be to
"interface" open source projects to the corporate world.

Yet it would also be entirely appropriate and quite conductive (others might
learn, for example :) ) to have it on this mailing list, and it *is* what we
expect of our communities. Posting a summary of the private discussion(s) for
example might help as well.
