Description

  • README file doesn't mention the licensing
  • there's file GPL2.txt
  • there's file GPL3.txt
  • libaudclient/audctrl.h is GPL2 only - just a typo?
  • libeggsmclient/ is LGPL "v2 (or later)"
  • libaudtag/ is GPL3, id3/ is GPL2 or 3 and GPL3
  • libaudgui/ is some 2-clause BSD variant plus GPL3
  • audtool/ is some 3-clause no-advertizing BSD variant
  • audacious/ is GPL, GPL2 or GPL3, and GPL3

I've been under the assumption that the combined work "Audacious" applies the GPLv3 licensing terms, even if some source files apply a different but compatible Open Source license.

History

#1 Updated by John Lindgren almost 9 years ago

The combined work is GPL3. Clarifying and correcting the copyright notices (individual and combined) is a work in progress. (At present, a number of files are still copyright "The Audacious Team", which was never a legal entity, to my knowledge, and has essentially dissolved.)
