Description David Disseldorp 2013-06-05 13:39:47 UTC
The following files are impacted:
lib/talloc/pytalloc.c
lib/talloc/pytalloc.h
lib/talloc/pytalloc_util.c

Jelmer, is the GPL license intentional in this case?

In order to change the pytalloc license to LGPL, the following developers would need to agree:
Jelmer Vernooij <jelmer@samba.org>
Andrew Tridgell <tridge@samba.org>
Stefan Metzmacher <metze@samba.org>

Would be ok for me...

What about the others python bindings of tdb, tevent, ldb?

Thanks.

pytdb.c, pytevent.c and pyldb.c are all LGPL.

I'm happy to see my pytalloc work relicensed as LGPLv3 or later.
