thank you for the correction.

can someone please get me up to speed on this? i've collated peoples
very gratefully received responses so far, here:

1) correct: i don't. i've been caught off-guard by this: it's very
short notice, and i have limited time available. i'm doing the best i
can to correct mistakes as i go along, but i *don't have time* to
observe the niceties, dot all the i's or cross all the t's.

2) that appears to be a request to a large audience. i have to point
out to that audience: end result of complying with the request above
will be that the free software community suffers as a result of losing
the opportunity to speak to - and therefore influence - the Directors
of one of the world's most successful, fastest growing [and also very
young and inexperienced] SoC fabless semiconductor company.

please make your own choice.
