License headers missing

Bug #190862 reported by Chris Halse Rogers on 2008-02-11
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tomboy (Ubuntu)
Kevin Kubasik

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

The licensing for tomboy is a mess. Of the files under the Tomboy directory, only the PrintNotes addin has any copyright headers (and these are GPL-2, not LGPL-2.1, which is missed in debian/copyright). Furthermore, libtomboy/tomboy*.{c,h} lack headers, and the debian/copyright file lacks the LGPL-2.1 preamble, and has ambiguous licensing for the uuencoded xpm files.

I don't think the GPL 2.1 exists...
