    Relicense gspell from GPLv2+ to LGPLv2.1+ · 08733020

    Every contributor, including myself, agree to re-license the code to
    LGPL.
    
    Evan Martin, the original author of GtkSpell, has sent me a private
    e-mail to say that he agrees.
    
    The GNU project recommends to use the GPL license for libraries that
    implement something innovative. But spell checking is implemented in
    almost every development platform, free software or proprietary. So the
    LGPL permits to have wider adoption in that case. See:
