Bug#435691: xserver-xorg-video-ati: GATOS relicensed under MIT

Package: xserver-xorg-video-ati
Version: 1:6.6.3-2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

The folks that develop GATOS have agreed to relicense their software 
under the MIT license[1].  This means that upstream will likely merge 
this code into mainline Xorg.

A patch[2] already exists for 6.6.3.  Another for 6.6.191[3], which 
should be adaptable to 6.6.192, the current version in experimental.  

I would appreciate patching 6.6.3, but understand if you want to keep 
this patch out of testing/unstable.

Best regards,

Nathan A. Stine
