Yes; it's dual licensed - which gives people rather a choice of licenses, GPLv2, GPLv3, LGPLv2, LGPLv3 etc. > Anyway, I am not familiar with libmapi, but it does indeed seem to be > (what is commonly referred to as) a library that is licensed under the > GPLv3.

Sure - so, IANAL etc. however I don't see a problem with a LGPLv3 / GPLv3 for the samba piece - I imagine, linking that in as a plugin makes Evo, with the current structure as a whole GPLv3; but without it potentially LGPLv2/GPLv2/LGPLv3 :-) AFAICS that gives some flexibility; but of course it's possible there are yet further un-anticipated problems ? :-) In the longer term, I'd prefer to see the samba piece isolated into a separate process.
