Sorry, I received your mail on Fri, 01 Mar 2002 19:20:19.
Here in Austria its not normal to work at that time :-)

My company is still working on our "Open Source Policy"
(currently its not the highest priority task ) and thats
the cause for the delay signing the copyright assignment.

But in the meantime as i told Erik its no problem for
my boss and me to use the code. It is not something
really new and anyway based on Red Hat code (SMC driver).

Surely its ok, and i am pleased if it could be useful
for someone else.

regards, Christoph
