Re: Licensing of old Debconf::Gettext module in dpkg

Hi Guillem,

GPL-2+ is fine for any of my modifications.

Best Regards,

Hi Joey and Nicolas!

Long time ago the Debconf::Gettext [O] module got imported into the dpkg
code base [I] with some modifications from Nicolas. The current module
in the dpkg code base is [C], which has seen substantial modifications
by me since its import.

This is the only BSD-2-clause file in the whole code base, so it would
be nice if it could get relicensed into GPL-2+ like almost all other
code in dpkg, to simplify the licensing. Would both of you be fine
with such relicense?
