    I have no idea. I made an offer on how to change the license, if that
    isn't ok, I'd like to hear.

    Well, if there is any problem with relicensing the code as GPL, let me
    know. I offered to change the license to make this smoother, but lots of
    kernel code came from a bsd license and was relicensed before.

    If there are problems with that, I'd like to hear. I see no point in
    keeping the code out just because it isn't gpl, but I don't see a point
    in making the original distribution dual licensed for no reason. (and, as
    I said, there is lots of bsd-derived code in the kernel and I am _really_
    keen on getting rid of any problems that forbid relicensing).

    I am now back from the cebit and much more responsive, btw.
