Did you mean LGPLv2 _or_ LGPLv3 here?
Yes; it's dual licensed - which gives people rather a choice of
licenses, GPLv2, GPLv3, LGPLv2, LGPLv3 etc.
Anyway, I am not familiar with libmapi, but it does indeed seem to be
(what is commonly referred to as) a library that is licensed under the
GPLv3. According to the FSF you can't release a project under the LGPLv2
or LGPLv3 if you want to use a library under GPLv3. You'll have to
convert your LGPLv2 or LGPLv3 code to the GPLv3 .
Sure - so, IANAL etc. however I don't see a problem with a LGPLv3 /
GPLv3 for the samba piece - I imagine, linking that in as a plugin makes
Evo, with the current structure as a whole GPLv3; but without it
potentially LGPLv2/GPLv2/LGPLv3 :-) AFAICS that gives some flexibility;
but of course it's possible there are yet further un-anticipated
problems ? :-) In the longer term, I'd prefer to see the samba piece
isolated into a separate process.
