MMIX port to be submitted, licensing issue
Sat Nov 3 11:57:00 GMT 2001
I'd like to submit a newlib port for the MMIX, to go with the
recent binutils and gcc ports.
What licensing terms are acceptable for new ports? It looks
like the LGPL used, and the mailing list indicate that the
licensing terms should be "freer". I'd prefer to go with LGPL.
If that's unacceptable, how about the following in
COPYING.NEWLIB, copied or referred to in each file:
