The HTML documentation is the only one that I generated, so I assumed that's
what you were talking about.
The doxygen webpage states the following: "Documents produced by doxygen are
derivative works derived from the input used in their production; they are not
affected by this license."
My understanding is that I can choose any license for the produced documents.
If that was not the case, using doxygen would force me to also use GPLv2.

Hmm... just to be on the same page: Are we talking about the generated
HTML-documentation? Out of curiosity and to trouble shoot: Which browser do
you use?

Well, ... technically it is. But taking pieces from the doxygen manual to
construct a doxygen.conf is also derived, isn't it? So am I forced into GPLv2
when using doxygen? I assumed the license requirements are less prohibitive.

I suppose the easy way out is to strip off the doxygen.conf and generated
documentation and leave it to interested people to run doxygen themselves.
