The changes I instigated were done in the spirit of sharing – feel free to use them in any way that seems appropriate, as I have no objections.
I'm Borut Razem and I'm working as a developer on SDCC project since
2002. I'm addressing you in the name of SDCC developers and users since
you are the co-author of the SDCC library code.
For the SDCC 3.0.0 release we plan to change the sdcc library license
from GLP / LGPL / "who knows what else" to GPL+Library Exception license,
which allows to use the SDCC library in "non open source" (proprietary)
projects. The SDCC compiler license will remain GPL.
The voting table is at http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sdcc/wiki/Library%20License%20Selection.
Can you please add your vote to the table or send it to me or to the
sddc-developer list firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd appreciate you
answer ASAP in any case, even if you don't agree with the license change.
Thank you for you contribution,
Borut & SDCC developers and users
