[Tracker] Relicensing tracker-extract to LGPL

Hi all,

After some internal discussion amongst the core developers, we would like to relicense tracker-extract and the extractors to LGPL based on this email thread:


I wrote a quick script which I have attached here (for others to use if they so wish to try it out). The script lists the number of lines written by each git author for a given directory of sources, which, in this case is src/tracker-extract and using master from today.

The results are:

martyn petunia:~/Source/tracker/src/tracker-extract$ git-copyright-for-dir
This may take a while depending on the size of the directory...

      1 Zeeshan Ali (Khattak)
      1 Tshepang Lekhonkhobe
      1 Michael Biebl
      1 John Carr

I have CC'd everyone on this list to make sure everyone is happy with changing the license of their code to LGPL. If no one speaks up by Monday, we will presume agreement.

Note: All those working for Nokia in directly or indirectly have not been CCd because all those contributions generally belong to Nokia and Ivan should be able to OK those. Ivan can you comment here for completeness?
