I'm trying to understand whether this change affects me.


1) Many specs I'm editor of contain ABNF. Does it need to be labeled as 
code component (I believe not).

2) These specs also collect all ABNF fragments into an appendix, 
containing the collected ABNF. Does that appendix need to contain the 
BSD license text (I believe not, but heard from colleagues that their 
docs are blocked because they do not).

3) If I *extract* ABNF from these documents (such as for the purpose of 
generating an input file for an ABNF parser), do I need to include the 
BSD license text? If so, can somebody explain how to do that given the 
constraints of the ABNF syntax?

Best regards, Julian
