Can I get a clarification here.

If an organization contributes code to Crosswire, Crosswire
can use it under the GPL 2.0 (or 3.0).

The organization that contributes the code can continue to
use their code under whatever licence the organization
contributing the code distributes their product under.

EG: I write a bible study program, and decide to include a
lectionary.   I can contribute the lectionary code to
CrossWire, which will further distribute it under the GPL.
I can continue to distribute my Bible study program, under
whatever licence I have chosen.

Or have I misunderstood something?
