[BZ#692425] License description is unclear
Submitted by Petteri Aimonen
Some places of the RSVG website claim the license is GPL, while the source code says LGPL: http://developer.gnome.org/rsvg/2.36/ http://git.gnome.org/browse/librsvg/tree/rsvg-base.c
I grepped through the source code, and it appears that the headers of most files specify LGPL. Only some tests claim GPL.
Furthermore, the license in the documentation seems to have been changed without any kind of announcement by this commit on 2010-06-22: http://git.gnome.org/browse/librsvg/commit/doc?id=14f3d4cef8d13e073108a5359524118099b2ac9b
So I would like a clarification on the current license of librsvg. Is it:
- Library itself LGPL, tests and documentation GPL.
- Library completely GPL after 2010-06-22, LGPL before it.
- Something else?
Personally I would much prefer LGPL for the library proper. Otherwise I may have to fork an old version for use with our GPL-incompatible program.
