I don't speak on behalf of any developers, but most times it is very difficult 
to change the license of an open source project, as the consent of all 
contributors would be needed which is nearly impossible. There are ways, but I 
don't think it is very likely.

Further information about linking gpl is widely available on the net.

Afaik it is always allowed to link to any library as long as you don't change 
it or open source only the changes to the library.

Best regards, Gerben

We are developing a iPhone app which is a free App and this app will make 
connection with windows server and enumerate services. This app uses  samba 
library.  Since the samba library comes under GPL license,We would like to know 
how to bundle this library.

Are there a chance that samba c library will be licensed under LGPL? Or could 
someone give use permission to link samba library.
