The following is a press release that we just released, with the cooperation and financial support of the Core Infrastructure Initiative and the Linux Foundation.
In the next few days we’ll start sending out email to all contributors asking them to approve the change. In the meantime, you can visit the licensing website and search for your name and request the email. If you have changed email addresses, or want to raise other issues about the license change, please email email@example.com. You can also post general issues to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are grateful to all the contributors who have contributed to OpenSSL and look forward to their help and support in this effort.
The official press release can be found at the CII website. The rest of this post is a copy:
