@huwenchao has contributed one single line to this project:

https://github.com/tony/libtmux/blame/master/README.rst#L101

Perhaps there is something we can do to push the MIT licensing forward without that contribution.

@dankrause Correct. We can.

BSD licenses aren't viral. The codebase can be MIT except for that one commit.

And technically we could rebase it out.

@huwenchao One more try, are you OK relicensing your commit MIT? We only need one person left for this!

It's been several months of asking. 86e1089 by @huwenchao is a typo. This is getting out of hand. We obviously want spelling corrections, but we can't hold up a LICENSE change forever.

I'm going to revert @huwenchao's typo fix. Then redo the typo myself (by inference licensing it MIT), thanking @huwenchao, linking to the original ref (licensed BSD).

This reverts commit 86e1089.

#46 (comment)

I will be recorrecting the typo myself immediately after this ref, and
licensing it MIT, to complete our licensing conversion.

Credits to @huwenchao at 86e1089 for spotting this typo. This was
reverted in 350248c to complete the BSD-to-MIT relicensing in this
