Hey everyone,

Thanks for "volunteering" to help with the EPL license effort.

The first thing we should do to get started migrating the Forge license is
each choose module(s) that we'd like to help migrate. Simply *reply
here*with the forge/core module you are taking on, and we will try not

Once you've chosen your module(s), we'll need to take the following steps.

   1. In all of the source file, check the /** License */ header to *ensure
   that the (c) Copyright is owned by JBoss. *

   - *If it is*, replace the header with the following License:

    * Copyright 2012 Red Hat, Inc. and/or its affiliates.
    * Licensed under the Eclipse Public License Version 1.0 (the "License");
    * you may not use this file except in compliance with the License.
    * You may obtain a copy of the License at
    *     http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl-v10.html
    * Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, software
    * distributed under the License is distributed on an "AS IS" BASIS,
    * See the License for the specific language governing permissions and
    * limitations under the License.

   - *If it is not*, then record the name of the file and at the end of
      your review, send a list of all such files discovered *as a reply* to
      this thread so that we can review the necessary actions to take (most
      likely no action will be required, and we will simply leave the header in

      2. Send your changes as a pull request for review.

   3. Another committer will review your pull request and merge the
   changes. Note - please *DO NOT* merge your own pull requests. We should
   have at least two sets of eyes reviewing each license change. We don't want
   to get this wrong!

   4. Drink beer.

Thanks folks! Let the re-licensing begin!
