All @rpm5.org code is under LGPLv2.1 which should be compatible
with anything.

If there are ANY issues, speak up and I'll try to "fix" whatever
licensing issue there is.

(aside)
If you want someone to represent belenix @rpm5.org, with perhaps cvs
write access, jut ask whenever.

I'd rather hear about issues sooner rather than later; there's always something
that can be done.
