With all this legal stuff - as trivial as it may _seem_, I wonder 
whether it's necessary to try and obtain some legal counsel.  I'm not 
sure that either of our statements are legally binding, although the 
intent of our actions is pretty clear.  All this admittedly for an SRS 
that is largely useless outside alfs' domain.  I think it's something 
that the other LFS projects could learn something from though.

Would Messrs Moglen or Rosen be willing to clarify matters do you think, 
or does anyone else have access to legal counsel that could do something 
on a voluntary basis/reduced rate (then again I haven't seen any 
airborne  porcus recently).

Cheers,

Matt.
