Actually I was asking about this a little while ago, in November I
believe. The perl alfs was basically unlicensed, ie there wasn't one to
speak of. Neven said he thought the BSD was going to be used, Matthias,
suggested the GPL for more protection, so as Neven was the only original
author who piped in and didn't seem sure i said i'd put in the GPL, though
that hasn't occured yet. Since then David (Siegel) said he's fine with the
GPL. Just to be certain i'll email direct everyone i can to get an
'official' response before doing anything, only problem is I haven't heard
Brian Dumm or Jesse Tie Ten Quee around recently, i know Jesse was
Back to the point, libxml is LGPL, so there really isn't a problem, if i
understand it right you can link to that code even from proprietary stuff.
