Donnie, that sounds like a really good idea. I have a maildir folder
containing 162 email I sent or received during this approach. I will
sort them and put the relevant ones in a tar file. I will keep them
until we figured out all the details on the license change.

Btw: Of course I cannot garantuee that every person I contacted was the
real one ... but I really, really doubt anyone would be able to "act"
like he would be this person.
