Wikipedia article about the suit:

 Text of settlement agreement at groklaw (linked to from wikipedia article):

Earliest post to a NetBSD list i can find with TLS' name on it:

According to Groklaw, the agreement is dated 4 Feb 1994.

Accordint to the NetBSD mailing list archives, the message from TLS is
dated 21 December 1993.

 Could you elaborate on your assertion that TLS "[was not] around
to talk about it when it was signed," or comment on the veracity of the
sources above?
