Gammu was written after MyGnokii which was based on the work of gnokii
as far as I remember.  I believe most gnokii code was removed from Gammu
but the reason for the split from gnokii in the beginning as far as I
could see was that patches from Marcin Wiacek weren't being accepted by
gnokii's maintainers.

What I saw on the list was an acrimonious strop which ended up with
Marcin creating his own gnokii equivalent due to being unable to work
with the gnokii maintainers.

There may be legal issues with the files but I would be very careful
about taking the views of a disgruntled developer for granted.

illustrate the fundamental disagreements between these two.
