The Future is a little Brighter

David links to a posting he forwarded from the Kowari developers list (original post here) from Amit Kapoor about the future of Kowari: "The Topaz Foundation ( is very pleased to forward the email, from Michael H. Wallach (Senior Counsel, Northrop Grumman) to Richard Fontana...We trust that this letter will end any confusion with respect to the future status of Kowari, which has been secured, and that the community will now be able to focus on making Kowari one of the most vibrant open source projects."

"Northrop Grumman respects the rights that users of open source Kowari software receive under the MPL. Northrop Grumman intends that open source Kowari software, licensed under the MPL, is and will remain free, open source software.

Moreover, Northrop Grumman has no objection to the continued appropriate use of the "Kowari" name by developers participating in the Kowari open source project."
