Hi, hope this gets through, since I'm not subscribed.

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.
Added my standard copyright header to tests/*.c in CVS.
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) include/bgav_sem.h lib/base64.c
As IOhannes already mentioned, all stuff except lib/base64.c are fallbacks for non-Posix systems (mainly windows). We'll try to get GPLed base64 routines.
