NOTE: This prerelease version of libfprint is mostly LGPL-licensed (as in the
text below) but also includes code from libthinkfinger which is licensed under
the GPL.
This libfprint release is therefore licensed under the LGPL *and* the GPL.
The GPL terms can be found in the COPYING.GPL file.
At release time, I will contact libthinkfinger authors and see if they will
be happy to relicense. I expect they will.
