Hi Burkhard (cc public Debian multimedia team mailinglist),

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.

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)
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.
