  Version         : 3.0.1
  Upstream Author : CGAL Developers <info@cgal.org>

  Description     : C++ library for computational geometry

 CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) makes the most important
 of the solutions and methods developed in computational geometry available
 to users in industry and academia in a C++ library. The goal is to provide
 easy access to useful, reliable geometric algorithms.
 The CGAL library contains:
 - the Kernel with geometric primitives such as points, vectors, lines,
   predicates for testing things such as relative positions of points, and
   operations such as intersections and distance calculation.
 - the Basic Library which is a collection of standard data structures and
   geometric algorithms, such as convex hull in 2D/3D, (Delaunay)
   triangulation in 2D/3D, planar map, polyhedron, smallest enclosing circle,
   and multidimensional query structures.
 - the Support Library which offers interfaces to other packages, e.g., for
   visualisation, and I/O, and other support facilities.

The library consists of three modules. The lower layers (Kernel and the
Support library) are licensed under LGPL, the upper layer (Basic Library) is
licensed under QPL. Code under LGPL and code under QPL is combined in one

I've CC'ed debian-legal and I would like to know whether both licenses are
