As far as I know, much work has gone into csound to ensure that all
copyright holders agreed to switching the license of the whole work to
GNU LGPL. Again, AFAIK all copyright holders have given their
permission, and the work can rightfully be considered libre software.
I'm putting Nicola Bernardini, one of Csound authors, to see if he can
help us clarify the matter.
If necessary, we (as the AGNULA project) will clarify things with the
relevant persons (although we are packaging it now and we did check
that we could do it).
