Description Adrian Perez 2019-03-02 09:28:58 PST
The license headers in these two files contain the Apple license blurb,
but the LGPL2 text should be used instead — because that one is the
license we use for the API layer of the GTK port.

A quick check with “git blame” shows that there are only a few people
who have touched those:

  - Michael Catanzaro
  - Tomas Popela
  - Carlos Garcia Campos
  - Adrian Perez de Castro (that's me!)

I'll try to get the authors to explicitly comment here that changing
the license header is fine by them, before making the actual change.
Comment 1 Adrian Perez 2019-03-02 09:31:57 PST
Adding [WPE], because in bug #195211 the patch copied the
GTK port headers, so the WPE headers have to be changed once
everybody agrees.

FWIW: I explicitly agree to change the license for these
two files.
Comment 2 Michael Catanzaro 2019-03-02 09:37:35 PST
Oops. This is pretty minor, but yeah, let's change it. Explicit +1.
Comment 3 Tomas Popela 2019-03-04 01:34:39 PST
+1 from me as well. Thank you Adrian for spotting this!
Comment 4 Carlos Garcia Campos 2019-03-04 01:48:43 PST
Comment 5 Adrian Perez 2019-03-04 03:51:15 PST
Thanks everybody for agreeing, I'll take care of making the patch
to change the license blurbs :)
