Any contributed code that gets back into the main code from now on is  
accepted on the basis that the copyright can be given to the Nagios  
Plugin team. I've updated the FAQ entry to be clearer on that policy: http://nagiosplugins.org/copyright

We'd be happy to hear about any changes, but only if you are willing  
to relinquish copyright.
