Subject: [B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCH 0/6] batctl: License cleanup
Date: Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:05:47 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20171119140553.24435-1-sven@narfation.org> (raw)

Hi,

the kernel community is currently trying to make the licensing status more
clear in each file. This is mostly done by adding SPDX license identifiers
and defining a set of rules how these license related information has to
be stored.

I've used this opportunity to also go through all files of batctl (for
example with FSFE's `reuse lint`) and to annotate the files according to
the "Linux licensing rules" and FSFE's REUSE practices.

There are two things which could be seen as controversial:

* change of batman_adv.h to the Linux preferred license
  (I am waiting for Acks in the batman-adv patchset)
* explicitly mark remaining files as licensed under the GPL-2.0

Kind regards,
	Sven
