What is the typical license for OpenMoko code?
I'm building openmoko right now -- thanks to the mokomakefile -- and
while waiting for it to finish, I'm reading through some of the code.
For example, openmoko-libs/libmokoui/. The is a COPYING file that
contains LGL version 2.1, but each source code file says:
* This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
* it under the terms of the GNU Lesser Public License as published by
* the Free Software Foundation; version 2 of the license.
Is it LGPL version 2 or version 2.1?
When I look inside panel-plugins/openmoko-panel-battery/, the COPYING
file contains GPL v.2 but the files say LGPL v.2.
When I look inside panel-plugins/openmoko-panel-mainmenu/, the COPYING
file contains GPL v.2 but the files says 'GNU Public
License'...'version 2'. A missing 'General'?
Is there any particular reason the license doesn't include the typical
'(or any later version)'?
I'm not trying to start a license flamewar, if that can be avoided;
I'm just curious because there seem to be some conflicting statements
in the source.
