[Freeswitch-dev] MPL Confusion

I have some confusion about FreeSWITCH's Mozilla Public License 1.1. I do
understand that me or any one can change provided code according to our
customization needs and we are not bound to share our changes as long as we
are not distributing it, right?

Now, i have been doing R&D on MSN and Yahoo voice chat services, I have now
completed by research and now would like to write up FS modules to
communicate with these servers. But as you all know both MSN and Yahoo
provide SIP based VOIP services, however they are not using standard SIP
stack and have their own versions of customized SIP stack. So, in order to
write an endpoint for these servers, instead of writing everything from
scretch, i can using existing mod_sofia endpoint and customize it to make it
compatible with MSN and Yahoo SIP stack. So here are my questions,

1. Is it possible under MPL, that i make a copy of mod_sofia as say mod_msn
and develop it to work with MSN, similarly mod_yahoo for Yahoo voice chat
2. If yes, how can i mention my role in these modules development, i.e. as
developer or as contributor?

Also i wish to include my work, once completed, in FreeSWITCH, can you
provide me the guidelines and / or eligibility criteria to do so, any link
on FS site etc.?

Thank you.
