Thanks for checking on this!

Indeed, the bulk of the license headers say "version 3 only", so I think
gajim is GPL3. But, I found a few files that are GPL3+, and at least one
2-clause BSD licensed file in 'src/command-system'.

Can you revise this patch to give a license list, with comments
explaining that the package is GPL3 but includes some
differently-licensed components?

Given that the combination is GPLv3-only in practice, I think it’s
enough to write ‘gpl3’ (I know we’ve been somewhat inconsistent here…).

In that case, could you use the patch set I sent earlier? That has only
the GPL3.
