Bug#356853: License of your contribution to the ae package



Dear Rolf,

I'm trying to reach you again using a different address, because my
previous attempt[1] with your @ptb.de address failed.

As part of a license audit in progress for the TeX distributions teTeX
and TeX Live, we Debian[2] TeX maintainers found that a number of files
in the ae package have no license statement, which unfortunately renders
them undistributable.

We think that the most natural choice of license for the ae package
would be the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL), whose text can be
found at this address:

  http://www.latex-project.org/lppl/

We got the agreement of its current maintainer, Lars Engebretsen, to
arrange for an update of the ae package using this license, provided
that the various copyright holders give us the permission to do so (all
of them already did, except you).

Looking at the ae package, it appears that you hold copyright on the
following file:

  tex/ae.sty

Do you accept that this file be distributed under the LPPL, with the
following statement, as suggested in the latest version of the LPPL?

  % This work may be distributed and/or modified under the
  % conditions of the LaTeX Project Public License, either version 1.3
  % of this license or (at your option) any later version.
  % The latest version of this license is in
  %   http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt
  % and version 1.3 or later is part of all distributions of LaTeX
  % version 2005/12/01 or later.

(ideally, you would send your answer in a digitally-signed mail)

Many thanks for your work, and in advance for considering this request.
