Re: [Tracker] Relicensing tracker-extract to LGPL


 Please do NOT relicense yet. I'll cross check with the experts that everything is fine.

Subject: [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...
Ordering data...

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?
