RE: [dsdp-pmc] [IPZilla CQ:1004]: Terminal View Version: < 1.0

Hi all,

I agree with what Martin says.  I hope we can pursue the simplest
solution, though.  Let's see what Janet says.  I am happy to talk to the
authors about dual licensing if that's our only option.

Summary of the voting:

+1 Martin Oberhuber
+1 Doug Gaff
+1 Mark Rogalski
+1 Shigeki Moride
+1 Mika Hoikkala

Doug
