Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2021-06-12 11:55:53 UTC
This is no GPL, but perhaps a modified MIT license

https://github.com/aanatoly/fbpanel/issues/65
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2021-06-12 12:33:21 UTC
That's plain vanilla MIT, except that it says "AUTHORS" instead of "AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS" in the warranty disclaimer, which is a negligible difference.
Comment 2 Ionen Wolkens gentoo-dev 2021-06-12 17:51:53 UTC
I think this should just be changed to "MIT LGPL-2+ GPL-2+", this assumes headerless files are using MIT anyway.

On a side-note, despite dead upstream, this software still works and I know a few people using it. Will have to go whenever gtk2 becomes a real problem though.
