What about meson build files? Although usually the license is not included,

If necessary, I also agree with relicensing.

It's somewhat unfortunate that the build scripts (and a couple of other
files) lack clear licensing information. I believe that they constitute
copyrightable work. As far as I'm aware, we don't document any sort of
"fallback" for files without explicit licensing terms like e.g. the
Linux kernel does. We'll eventually need to clarify licensing of those

Since you're originally written the meson scripts and have done most
work on them, I'm wondering if you could submit a patch to add that
would add a SPDX tags to files? We prefer LGPL-2.1+, but I
guess anything more liberal would also work.

Thank you

Thomas asked me to send email agreeing to the relicensing. I am not
copyright holder of any code in NetworkManager and do not believe
that I
have any say in this decision, but if it turns out that I do, then,
sure, I agree.

I also agree (though like Dan, the copyright on my contributions is
held by Red Hat any may be relicensed as Thomas requests).
