It is up to the gvSIG to decide what is included with their project 
material. The content I created is CC-BY-SA and can be modified by 
anyone in the group authorized to meet there future needs.

My only concern is that links to a fork from the parent project gvSIG, 
specifically the new project gvSIG-CE, are not inserted into the main 
projects material as it causes confusion (particularly due to the 
similarity in the names).

Cheers Simon
