Hi San Hong,

Adopt can build the patch for you, but can we just check that the resulting
binaries are clean from a GPLv2+CE point of view?

That is, it might be safest from an IP flow standpoint to build this from a
forest with the code having been donated under the OCA or donated code
clearly being all licensed under GPLv2+CE.
