Do any of these ob-* files have FSF copyright i.e. author assigned copyright to FSF. Just wondering, given the contrib package will live in non-gnu repo, if this is something we need to be concerned about or not? Strikes me there is nothing written in stone here, so if a language becomes popular and it has maintainers, we can always review the decision to move it 'out' and when justified, move back into core. I think it is good having a clear distinction and the idea that if your using a contrib package, it is 'best effort only' and not guaranteed to work with the most recent org version compared to 'core', which has an expectation it works with most recent org version. -- Tim Cross
