Hi folks,

lilypond --warranty tells me I should have received a copy of the GPL
(referred to in the file COPYING) with the binaries. However, I don't
seem to be able to find anything close to a license anywhere in

This probably needs to be fixed. As I understand it, if I were to host
the GUB as is on my website I'm violating the terms of the GPL.

On a related issue, how does the lack of accompanying licenses affect
the distribution of other software in the GUB, like Python (ok
AFAIK), the ps2whatever utilities, fonts and so on?

Or have I (like so many before me) completely misunderstood this whole
licensing thing?
