Sorry for not being around (email probs and work has been horrendously busy the 
last two weeks).

Anyhow, reteptools (and I've not had chance to merge the rest in yet) has never 
been released before, so AFAIK it's under the same as PostgreSQL (I wouldn't 
have put them in the source tree otherwise).

The only one (which isn't in there) is the pdf stuff which was released under 
the LGPL.

Now as for the LGPL, say for argument sake I released something under it. I 
could change it, but not any additions made by other people without their 
permission. The pdf stuff falls under this snag.

Anyhow, reteptools is not GPL'ed in any form.
