There was a short discussion on the list, but it petered out because it

The discussion seems to have finished again, so we should really do
something if we are going to relicence.

The general consensus appear to be in favour of re-licencing to GPL with
an exception for GStreamer plugins, and the only objection I think I've
heard being that it would mean we can't "borrow" code from other GPL'd
projects without getting permission to re-licence.

Do we have any idea whether relicensing to GPL+exception would be acceptable to the Red Hat lawyers and actually solve the immediate problem?
