Uh huh.  You keep thinking that.  There's an error in logic that
you've made here, but I'll save that for last.

There are reasons we don't use linked lists for some things (speed
is chief among them).

It's not an NDA (non-disclosure agreement).  In fact, there's nothing
even close to a non-disclosure clause in any of the disclaimers.  One
disclaimer grants a license for Digium to use your contributed code;
the other disclaimer releases your work into a body of work that needs
no license (public domain).  Please do not spit up three-letter
acronyms without having an understanding of what they mean; once
again, you've made yourself look stupid.

Now as to your inability to sign a disclaimer, I can only conclude
that you're under the legal age to sign a contract.  In this case, you
are perfectly able to have your parent or guardian sign a disclaimer
on your behalf and fax it to Digium.  In spite of your apparent
disability to have a disclaimer signed and delivered, this fact by no
means precludes you from looking at the source, or even altering it.
The only thing that not having a signed disclaimer means is that any
changes you make cannot be contributed back.

Logic problem:  you're assuming that your supposition is correct and
drawing a conclusion, despite having cited no evidence to support that
supposition.  I have a third possibility for you:  your supposition is
wrong, I've made significant contributions to the Asterisk code base,
and I _have_ just flamed you.  Again.
