Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-06-15 07:33:11 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release.  Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2010-06-15 08:10:48 UTC
"LGPLv2.1 gives you permission to relicense the code under any version of the GPL since GPLv2", so its sort of a tautology to say that something released under LGPLv2+ can also be placed under GPLv2+. Though its common in firefox-land to explicitly state "LGPLv2+ or GPLv2+". Can't hurt anyway, seeing as it was explicitly stated in the README, we might as well explicitly state it in the Licence
