Commit 5430f7f2 authored by Lennart Poettering's avatar Lennart Poettering

relicense to LGPLv2.1 (with exceptions)

We finally got the OK from all contributors with non-trivial commits to
relicense systemd from GPL2+ to LGPL2.1+.

Some udev bits continue to be GPL2+ for now, but we are looking into
relicensing them too, to allow free copy/paste of all code within
systemd.

The bits that used to be MIT continue to be MIT.

The big benefit of the relicensing is that closed source code may now
link against libsystemd-login.so and friends.
