That's fine, I'd just need to start preparing to find all of these
people and making a list.

Do we know what kind of permission we'd need to ask for? Is something
like this adequate? "hey, we want make adium easier to download for
users, and we have to do x, y, and z to do that. We need your
permission in order to do that. Is it ok?"

Is the intention to put Adium in the store for free or for sale?
