Hi Phil,
sorry for the late follow up, and thanks a lot for your answer, it's quite

Where do I download JAI sources these days... humm... don't know honestly,
I have downloaded
the sources 10+ years ago and used it since :-)

About "proper" open source licence, since it's a library, it would be great
if the licence was not viral.
Ideally something widely compatible, like modified BSD or Apache 2, I guess
GPL with classpath
exception would do as well.

Thanks a lot for taking an interest in it, I understand there can be
difficulties, especially
on a project this old
