I don't know if any work has continued on MaxRPM yet, but I do know
the relicensing is continuing in other areas.

I don't easily see where the source for the updated MaxRPM snapshot
is; that would be helpful in gathering a list of all copyright
holders.  Is that just the names that appear in the snapshot?  Paul,
Matthias, and Ville?  I'm sure that we can get RHT's permission, fwiw.
I'll certainly talk with Ed Bailey, as a matter of course.
