Thank you for detailed answers. I will definitely follow up with any
specific questions. The way I look at translators are like device drivers
in operating system. None of our translators require any changes to
gluster code base. And if they do then my understanding is that under
lgpl2, those specific changes need to be made open source.
However I will also seek independent legal opinion, just to be sure.
