I tried that, but actually found this easier to read. :-)

Will double-check.

Oops, yes, there are some gpl2+ files at least. But Ceph itself is
LGPL2.1 only AFAICT; the COPYING file has a debian-style copyright
format and adds "or later" on some components but not on '*'. No
copyright headers in the source files I've checked.

Unfortunately COPYING does not cover the bundled components, so I still
have some digging to do.

Thanks! I'm sure there is a lot of work remaining to make *everything*
work (e.g. 'ceph-deploy'), but will make sure it's possible to provision
a cluster the "old school" way at least :-)
