[...] BSDL doesn't allow relicensing under the GPL. It doesn't have LGPL like clause that allows it. This is true. The original work is still covered by the original license. What happens is a dual licensing, the original code is still licensed under the BSD license, and the new code is licensed under the GPL. Only person who can re-license something is the copyright holder. _______________________________________________ Gnu-misc-discuss mailing list Gnuemail@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
