|The files in here are mostly copyright (C) Free Software Foundation, and|
|are under assorted licenses. Mostly, but not entirely, GPL.|
|+Many modules are provided dual-license, either GPL or LGPL at your|
|+option. The headers of files in the lib directory (e.g., lib/error.c)|
|+state GPL for convenience, since the bulk of current gnulib users are|
|+GPL'd programs. But the files in the modules directory (e.g.,|
|+modules/error) state the true license of each file, and when you use|
|+'gnulib-tool --lgpl --import <modules>', gnulib-tool either rewrites|
|+the files to have an LGPL header as part of copying them from gnulib|
|+to your project directory, or fails because the modules you requested|
|+were not licensed under LGPL.|
|Some of the source files in lib/ have different licenses. Also, the|
|copy of maintain.texi in doc/ has a verbatim-copying license, and|
|doc/standards.texi and make-stds.texi are GFDL.|
