Hi all,

I was wondering what is others' take on Pan bug 693272?

It indeed looks like we can't feature linking to a LGPLv3 library
(gnutls2/3) due to the license incompatibility, which is very unfortunate.

Getting permission from all code contributors to relicense the code to
"GPLv2 or later" doesn't seem to be very realistic either.

This sucks.
I frankly didn't notice before, but perhaps we could license pan under LGPL3?
I'm not familiar with the legal mumbo-jumno involved in this.
Could you ask Charles / are you familiar with this ?
