Hi - I'd like to sort this out before we can release a new dvb-apps (I've
already been contacted by a distro asking for clarification on the licensing
situation). Note that I'm not trying to force people to use a specific
license - ANY OSS license will do, as long as there is one.
I have rewritten '*zap', and I am rewriting 'scan' from scratch under the GPL
to fix the problem with those - and also to use the new libs and make them
more maintainable, fix longstanding bugs etc.
I'm not concerned about the stuff in test/ as that is not really that useful
to the end user.
I found these other files in utils though:
These were written mainly by Holger Waechtler.. unfortunately I don't have any
contact details for him. Contributors: Holger Waechtler, Oliver Endriss,
Johannes Stezenbach, and myself (very small compile fix from me).
This was written by Alex Woods, I dont have a contact for him either
unfortunately. (He is the sole contributor, apart from a small compile fix by
dib3000-watch.c has a GPL header. Patrick, I basically just wanted to check if
it was ok to apply that same header to these other three files?
