However, Kurt, on the behalf of the OpenLDAP Foundation, explicitly

statically checked, so I won't be sending reports (except for one
more I have already generated).

I think this is a mischaracterization of the particular action the Foundation took (in off-list email).

The Foundation was presented with a offer to participate in a marketing program. As a matter of policy, such offers are to be rejected and the Foundation, hence, declined your offer.

It our correspondance with you, we noted that our statement declining your offer in no way impacts licenses the OpenLDAP Foundation has granted regarding the use and/or distribution of OpenLDAP Software. That is, you can continue to use OpenLDAP Software under the terms of the copyright and license statements. No special license is need to perform static checking of OpenLDAP Software.

Subsequent to this, you asked whether it would be okay to send an additional report to the list. The Foundation responded that you need no special permission to submit additional messages to OpenLDAP mailing lists.

To summarize: you made an offered reports with strings; we rejected the strings. No one has precluded you from submitting further reports for discussion. Just no strings, please.

The OpenLDAP Foundation
