Condolences on your corporate legal department's silliness. I
the paperwork really matters at all for a one-character change. I guess it
would be improper to do a commit with your Signed-off-by line without the
paperwork, but one of us (me if I were not so lazy) could just commit the fix.
Grin, yeah. I have been straining myself to not just recreate the fix
from scratch (writing this email is probably more work). Because I
think it is better to have someone blocked on something this simple than
have them being blocked in the future when they have something more
substantial. Lets see if Nick can get something good out of his legal
department. After that all future contributions should come "for free".
Nick please let us know if things look hopeless then we can certainly
just write a very similar fix ourselves. I have it on my list to double
check before we do a new release.
