What, that the license is lgpl2.1+ ?


That's what the website states (right at the top of the front page), along with an explanation that the license changed from 2.5 to 2.6. It is also what the README and the LICENSE files state.

I'm aware.  That's why I considered it implausible that...

whoever updated the package from 2.5.2 to 2.6.0 did not pay attention and missed the license change.

Of course only Jakub (CC'd) can know for sure.  :-)

I opened an issue[0] upstream earlier today but no reply yet. If these GPL2+ headers are meaningful *in any jurisdiction*, we *can't* claim that our FLINT is LGPL2+. Nor can upstream.

I was unable to build FLINT without these files.

Kind regards,
