As long as you mean what I think you mean by 'public license', that's
great! Now I can tell mantis that all he has to do is make a simple
statement, and we'll do the rest, which is a good selling point.
A minor point: is the mantis at siriusfiction.com address still good? Or

snailmail to Sirius fiction's po box, with a request to forward to
MA-D? Or shall I do all three?
going to work on rough draft of letter now.
