Although Morioka-san, the main programmer of SEMI, stayed at
ETL for one year, ETL is not a copyright holder of SEMI.  We
already have assignment papers from the developpers, but
that was several years ago.  I don't know how many other
programers contributed code to the current SEMI, FLIM, and
APEL (three cooperating packages).

I included Morioka-san's address in CC:.  Morioka-san,
please give us the information about the current status of
those packages.  Does the assignment papers already sent to
FSF cover the whole codes (except tiny changes)?  If not, is
it possible to get papers from the other programmers?  FYI,
you can read previous mails of this thread at:
