+    that is able to clarify open source licensing issues:
+    "Please let the maintainer know that Google LLC formally consents to
+    relicensing Googlers' contributions to libabigail to the LGPLv3 / Apache
+    2 with LLVM Exception license.
+    If the maintainer would like to direct one of the relicensing requests
+    to us directly, we'll be happy to respond in the affirmative."
