Follow-up Comment #28, task #7015 (project administration):

Hi Sylvain,

First of all, I would like to thank you for your efforts in
getting the licensing issues resolved for this submission.

Certainly, I can mail Eric Brill regarding re-licensing of
the software. Before I do so, however, I feel that I should
at least understand myself "the precise problem and/or the
imcompatibility(s) with GPL" with the current license.

I just had a re-look at the license of Brill's tagger and
then compared it with "W3C SOFTWARE NOTICE AND LICENSE"

I did NOT find any basic difference between the terms of
these two licenses. They use almost the same wordings.
According to FSF web page,

 W3C Software Notice and License
          This is a free software license and is GPL compatible.

Now I would like to request you to let me know what you
consider is the difference between the Brill's license and
"W3C SOFTWARE NOTICE AND LICENSE". Then I can request Eric
Brill for possible re-licensing by citing the specific
problem with the current license.
