IANAL but is this a copyright or license problem? I've sent all the
"2.3.2a5" marked patches to be included into the official rancid
distribution. If all it takes to achieve this is to renounce on my
copyright so be it. I do not mind as the patches are small and the
amount of "innovation" those patches implement is infinitesimal. The
copyright was more to give credit than anything else.
