[Axiom-developer] graphviz

I've looked at your graphics visualization software
and read the license. It seems compatible with the
Modified BSD license that we use for Axiom
although I can't say that I fully understand all
the possible legal ramifications.

One item of note is that changes are supposed to be
sent back to AT&T but it doesn't say where and to whom.

The general mechanism that Axiom uses with software is to
distribute the original tarball unchanged. During the build
process patches are dynamically applied. This is compatible
with your license as I understand it. We need to know, if
we do make changes, where to send copies of these patches.

In addition, we have a wiki website. If we find this software
useful we're likely to extend it to handle hyperlinking to our
source files. This is non-commercial use and does not involve
distribution in any physical sense. Nevertheless, we're willing
to contribute patches back to the original project.

Please send me a contact name and email address for patches.
