[20060216] Permission to Incorporate POSIX® Material
After having this linger around for a long time (my fault), I finally managed to coordinate the press release of NetBSD getting permission to use documentation from the Single Unix Specification (SUSv3, POSIX). It was interesting working with The Open Group on this, and coordinating the press release with both The OpenGroup and the IEEE, which share the rights on the POSIX standard. (Don't ask me for details, I won't claim to fully understand the relationship ;)

As there were apparently some questions on the scope of this, I've sent a mail to netbsd-users@ to clarify things. Hope it helps. ;)
