Hello,
I am an attorney at Cisco Systems, Inc. and have been asked to evaluate,
from a legal perspective, obligations concerning usage of your code and
whether making a donation would be appropriate.  So for due diligence,
while visiting your site, I noticed that at the "Copyright and Legal
Information" page, the freeBSD license is posted along with the GPL and
LGPL licenses.
 
I am confused why the GPL and LGPL licenses are posted at your site and
whether there are restrictions or obligations imposed, more than "Do not
claim that you wrote this." and "Do not sue us if it breaks."  Is all of
the code available from your site licensed under the freeBSD copyright
or some software available under the GPL or LGPL license?
 
Also, the freeBSD copyright seems directed toward copyright but silent
toward patent rights and trade secrets.  Is this intentional?
 
Thank you for any and all assistance you can give me.
Regards,
Victoria Mah
