As it is said. Jeremie is currently employed by Webb to work full-time upon
Jabber. This is similar to Mozilla where Netscape has a number of their
programmers working full time upon the project.

This is related to a thread discussed a couple weeks ago. Look in the
archives for more information.

In short, the answer is a big, fat, NO. Jabber, in whole, is released under
Open Source Guidelines. All independent software (clients, transports,
utilties, etc.) are released under the GPL. jlib and the jnix client library
are both released under the LGPL to prevent licensing/commerical software

I would guess it was from a recruiter because of the content and nicely
ofuscated e-mail headers, but that's just me. Either way, unless you're
living in a state that has outlawed spam mail, there isn't much one can do
about it except place them upon our kill list.

I hope you don't leave the Jabber project. We're the same as we've always
been. We've just received a little spam. ;)

Personally, I'm complimented some company believes we're
influencial/important enough to draw developers from.
