Dear fellow Sword and BibleTime developers,
Is there anyone here who would be able and willing to help Ben van Klinken,
the maintainer of clucene, with fixing licensing issues for the upcoming
clucene 0.9.11 release? This release is going to fix important bugs but is
delayed because of these issues.
Below is a copy of our communication.

Really the only thing that we are stuck on is the license. I need to find
replacement functions for many of the functions in gunichartables.cpp and
repl_wcs.cpp (in the config directory). If we had apache compatible licenses
for these functions, i could make release within a few days.
Do you think there's any chance of you being able to help with that?
