Re: RFS: bluecove, bluecove-gpl

Hi Chris,

I briefly reviewed the copyright information of libbluecove and was kind of
irritated by README and LICENSE saying it is LGPL while *all* (well, a few even
missing license/copyright information) the source files say it is Apache 2.0
licensed!? Could you please get some clarifification from upstream?

Please get this fixed first as BlueCove-GPL relies on this one and cannot be
built without it.

Run lintian with the additional flag -i to get a more detailed description,
which can also be found here:

I guess this is up to you, whether you prefer future team maintenance or would
like to stay the lone maintainer of these packages.

Hope this helps,
