We have never had someone that agreed to the SCSL or any other "gated
community" license contribute any code to GNU Classpath. So you would be
the first. We should let FSF legal look at the precise text of the
contract you signed, how it restricted you, how you terminated it and
precisely what contribution you would like to make to GNU Classpath.
I assume you could since I have seen claims being made that the SCSL
isn't "tainting". But please send me all the above information
(off-list) and I'll forward it to FSF legal.
