For any code that I wrote (you might check the CVS logs) I can grant
relicensing rights to the code under the LGPL.

I dont remember that one.

> src/layout.c:

> get_other_panel
> get_other_type
> print_vfs_message

I wrote those.

free to relicense.

> src/panel.c:
> current_panel

free to relicense.

> src/setup.c:
> load_anon_passwd

free to relicense.

> src/slint.c:
> disable_interrupt_key
> enable_interrupt_key
> got_interrupt

I believe I implemented those.

Jakub most likely did this and a few others.

Did these two or four.

ditto (maybe Jakub and Radek also).

Janne might have been the author of these (my_system I believe everyone

Radek wrote the original code, I rewrote it completely, so it might be
ok, except if people modified after.

For the record, I dont object to move any of my contributions from GPL
to LGPL if it serves the team's effort.
