Some contributors of Classpath might be annoyed if their work was being
used under conditions that are not according to the terms of the license.
However, enforcing the license in court (if this was ever needed) would
be easier if the Free Software Foundation can claim to speak in the name
of all authors. For this reason, and for others that are specific to the

be a bit picky about getting signatures from all contributors. Please do

it appears in your passport) and your current postal address to the
maintainer of GNU Classpath, Mark Wielaard <address@hidden>.

name of everyone here if I say that we are looking forward to your
