Subroject and FMPP project ownership/license changes?

Daniel Dekany
I primarily address this to Jonathan Revusky and Attila Szegedi.

As you might noticed, I have moved the "site" and "docgen" subproject
to GitHub, so they are now all under https://github.com/freemarker.

I have also moved FMPP there, despite that it's currently only owned
by me, and was developed as an external project so far.

To ease CLA managment and all that, I would like to change the license
and ownership of all these subprojects to be exactly the same as of
FreeMarker itself (https://github.com/freemarker/freemarker,
https://github.com/freemarker/freemarker/blob/2.3-gae/LICENSE.txt).
That means that if someone signs the CLA, he can contribute to any of
these. I guess this is just natural for "docgen" and "site", but how
about FMPP? Do you mind becoming legal owners there too?

So, the question is, do you agree and will become one of the copyright
owners of "docgen", "site" and "fmpp" (as the license says "Copyright
2014 Attila Szegedi, Daniel Dekany, Jonathan Revusky"), and do you
agree to change the license of these projects to Apache License,
Version 2.0?

Well, here you get Attila's response quoted below for posterity.

I'm sorry for not answering sooner. Like Attila, I consider it highly
unlikely (though unlike him, I don't say absolutely never, who
knows...) that I will be active with FreeMarker again.

The proposed change is fine with me.

Best Regards,

Jonathan Revusky

Daniel Dekany
Thanks. So then, FMPP (and the other subprojects) is hereby part of
the CLA "pool" and will share the same license.
