Follow-up Comment #38, task #15078 (project administration):

> ./src/tests/spd_cancel_long_message.c and
./src/tests/spd_set_notifications_all.c are GPLv2-only. They are however
stand-alone programs which only link against src/api/c/, which is
LGPLv2.1-or-later, so AIUI it won't pose problem?

All software hosted on Savannah must be GPLv3+-compatible. Why are these
programs less problematic than any other?

On the other hand, it wouldn't be reasonable to expect that autotools would
look for the license text and when missing add it where package authors want,
so they have to check those things anyway, even with autotools.
