Hello,

This patch series is to relicense the source code of the Libabigail
project to Apache 2.0 with LLVM Exception.

The rationale and the process of this change was recently presented in
a message sent to the mailing list of the project at
https://sourceware.org/pipermail/libabigail/2020q2/002388.html.

This patch series needs to be reviewed and acknowledged by all the
copyright holders who contributed to the project.  These contributors
are all listed in the "To:" field of this message.

After the review, to acknowledge the change, each contributor needs to
reply to each one of the patches with a line containing this:

     Signed-off-by: First Last <contributor@email.com>

with First being her first name and Last being her last name.

I will apply each ACKed patch to the newly created branch of our Git
repository named "relicensing".

Please note that all these steps were described in the announcement
message at https://sourceware.org/pipermail/libabigail/2020q2/002388.html.

Now, please find below a brief description of the patches of the
series.

The first patch replaces the existing license headers of the files of
the project with SPDX identifier strings that formally represent those
current licenses.

The second patch adds SPDX identifiers to the files that are missing
license headers.  The license of those files is thus "GNU Lesser
General Public License v3.0 or later", which is the default license of
the project.

The third patch adds a helper script named
relicensing-scripts/has-spdx-header.sh which detects if a file as an
SPDX identifier or not.

The fourth patch adds a helper script named
relicensing-scripts/replace-spdx-license.sh which replaces and SPDX
identifier by another one.

The fifth patch adds a set of helper files assembled with the scripts
above.  For instance, one of those files lists the set of files of the
project, along with their respective licenses.  Another file just
lists the set of files that needs to be re-licensed.  The patch also
creates a script named relicensing-scripts/do-relicensing.sh which
performs the actual re-licensing off the files listed in one of the
helper files.

The sixth patch is the actual relicensing. It's done using the script
relicensing-scripts/do-relicensing.sh introduced in the patch above.

The seventh patch adds a LICENSE.txt file to the repository,
specifying the new license.

The eighth patch removes the COPYING files which were specifying the
old license.

The last patch adds a license-change-2020.txt file which states that
the license of the project was changed and which also names the
contributors who did agreed with the change.

Dodji Seketeli (8):
  Add missing SPDX headers to source files not specifying any license
  Add has-spdx-header.sh script
  Add replace-spdx-license.sh script
  Add helper files to perform the re-licensing
  Re-license the project to Apache v2 With LLVM Exception
  Add the LICENSE.txt file
  Delete COPYING* files
  Add a license-change-2020.txt file

Matthias Maennich (1):
  Replace individual license references with SPDX Identifiers

As I said earlier I think dropping all copyleft is the wrong move for
the project. And personally I feel this is very demotivating for
contributing in the future. But if you believe a majority of the
contributors agrees with this change then I won't block it. So, if you
do get a majority of the contributors to add their Signed-of-by for
the patches, then feel free to also add my Signed-off-by.

Cheers,

Mark

Thank you Matthias!

I have added this to the patches and it'll be reflected in the v3
version of the series.  Until then you can see it in the current version
of the "relicensing" branch which can be browsed at
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=libabigail.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/relicensing

Thanks Ben!

I have thus updated the relicensing branch that can be browsed at
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=libabigail.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/relicensing.

Your signed-off will be availabe in the coming v3 version of the patch
series.

> Now, please find below a brief description of the patches of the
> series.
>
> The first patch replaces the existing license headers of the files of
> the project with SPDX identifier strings that formally represent those
> current licenses.
>
> The second patch adds SPDX identifiers to the files that are missing
> license headers.  The license of those files is thus "GNU Lesser
> General Public License v3.0 or later", which is the default license of
> the project.
>
> The third patch adds a helper script named
> relicensing-scripts/has-spdx-header.sh which detects if a file as an
> SPDX identifier or not.
>
> The fourth patch adds a helper script named
> relicensing-scripts/replace-spdx-license.sh which replaces and SPDX
> identifier by another one.
>
> The fifth patch adds a set of helper files assembled with the scripts
> above.  For instance, one of those files lists the set of files of the
> project, along with their respective licenses.  Another file just
> lists the set of files that needs to be re-licensed.  The patch also
> creates a script named relicensing-scripts/do-relicensing.sh which
> performs the actual re-licensing off the files listed in one of the
> helper files.
>
> The sixth patch is the actual relicensing. It's done using the script
> relicensing-scripts/do-relicensing.sh introduced in the patch above.
>
> The seventh patch adds a LICENSE.txt file to the repository,
> specifying the new license.
>
> The eighth patch removes the COPYING files which were specifying the
> old license.
>
> The last patch adds a license-change-2020.txt file which states that
> the license of the project was changed and which also names the
> contributors who did agreed with the change.

Thank Sinny!

I have updated the content of the relicensing branch with your
signed-off!

It can be browsed at
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=libabigail.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/relicensing.

[...]

Cheers,

Hello Mark,

So now that the 1.8 release is out of the door, I guess it's time to look into
this unfinished relicensing business again.

At this point, it seems to me that all the contributors have signed-off
the relicensing proposal, agreeing to change the license of the project
to Apache Version 2, with the LLVM exception.

As per what you said earlier in the message below, we can now assume
that we've got your sign-off as well:

I thus went ahead and added your signed-off-by to the content of the
relicensing branch.  It can be browsed at
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=libabigail.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/relicensing.

Thank you again for allowing us to move forward on this topic even if
this move goes against your point of view -- that you presented
eloquently.  I really appreciate that stance and I want to praise you
for this utterly elegant behaviour.  Really.  This is appreciated.  You
are an inspiration for me.

Cheers,
