* Please remove TBD's from the following page:


Code Review:
* This has comments which include:
"As far as we remember, Wolfgang Baer allowed to put this code under the 
LGPL. TODO: confirm this".

I'm afraid this would not placate a lawyer who has been asked to check 
whether this code can be used for the project or not.

I'd like to see a description about how this issue is planned to be 
solved, or whether it has been decided to ignore the issue and only 
re-visit if someone challenges the project.


* There are also some Red crosses in the code review at:
I would not consider this code review complete until there is an 
explanation as to why these red crosses are not a problem. At the 
moment, I'd assume that there is a problem.

And finally, I'd expect the committer guidelines to be finalised before 
OSGeo incubation is complete:


Are Committer Responsibilities Guidelines 
covering legal issues in place?
    A document
    <http://wiki.deegree.org/deegreeWiki/deegreeCommitterGuidelines> has
    been set up be the PSC. It still needs final review and then has to
    be accepted by all committers. 

I'm on leave next week, so please excuse me if I don't respond to 
emails. Don't consider my vote as blocking on account of me not 
responding. However, I strongly urge you to address the issues above.
