I'm not sure its a problem.  The source code already contains the
copyright, and this only affects the JDBC driver.  Perhaps we just need
to put in the JDBC driver readme file that parts were provided by
Exolab?

I guess, it all depends on who defines "due credit".  The code was
submitted by Assaf Arkin <arkin(at)exoffice(dot)com>.  Who gets to ask?
