[avr-gcc-list] Re: avr-libc license issues

I now have a few weeks to devote to getting the licensing issues resolved 
and the project set up on savannah.

Here's what I found for the BSD license:


Another alternative is this (MIT or X11 License):


Both seem to be equivalent and are essentially public domain with an 
explicit license.

What I propose to do is add one of the above licenses to all the files
which are public domain. I would also like to change the GPL + exception
files to the new license (I won't unless I get approval from Denis
Chertykov and Michael Stumpf).

The files in libc/bsd/ will not be changed.

The files in libc/gnu/ will not be changed and should most likely be
removed in the future since the LICENSE file says they may not be safe to
include in proprietary applications.

I will make these changes to the avr-libc-20020203.tar.gz from Marek's
site (http://www.amelek.gda.pl/avr/libc/) and post a patch. If the patch
is OK, I will re-submit the new code to the savannah folks.

If anyone has objections, please let me know.
