Hi Burkhard (cc public Debian multimedia team mailinglist),

I am a Debian developer and recently got involved in the maintainance of multimedia project packaging.

During a copyright and licensing audit I noticed an oddity of the headers for regression tests in your gmerlin-avdecoder project: It contains a copyright and parts of the standard GPL boilerplate, but lacks the first part actually declaring GPL as the license.

Technically you do not permit redistribution of those tests, which I suspect was unintentional.

I suggest you adjust the headers of those files for next release of your project.

More troublesome, but maybe also more difficult to solve, I discovered that some source files are licensed as 4-clause BSD which is incompatible with GPLv2.

These are the files I found containing 4-clause BSD licensing:

  lib/os.c (at line 93)

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
