Thank you for the update. Please put me down under the “Don't Care” preferred licence category.

Hello Llewellyn van Zyl,
I've sent you the following mail 2010-08-03, but I haven't receive any
answer yet, so I'm resending it in case you didn't receive it.
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, scheduled for 2010-10-17, 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
