Ok thats pretty clear, I spoke with Paulo Borelli on irc who went
through relicencing gtksourceview and they tracked it in bugzilla
(for 3a, which I guess is the tricky part, to keep it well documented).

So I'm thinking to go with a bugzilla report if thats valid... actually
I'd do it now but I have to go to bed :)

Thanks for the replies they were helpful, I'll be sure to ask if I
need help with more details :)
