Misleading licensing information
I've noticed some license differences across the project and since I'm not a lawyer I thought about bringing it to your attention. Goal here is to seek clarification or rectification if needed.
Namely: The top level LICENSE states "All PipeWire source files are licensed under the MIT License.". Similarly the README.md and meson.build also state MIT, yet there are a handful of files which are LGPL/GPL(?) licensed.
Here is a summary of my casual grep for "the GNU". Headers:
- pipewire-jack/jack/ - all the files, source the jack project
- spa/plugins/bluez5/ - couple of files, source PA
- src/modules/module-filter-chain/ - one file, source the ladspa project
Source code & headers:
- spa/plugins/alsa/acp/ - majority of the files, source PA
- spa/plugins/alsa/mixer/ - minority of the files, source PA
With above in mind - some source files which are part of Pipewire are not MIT - I think the note in LICENSE is off. Would it make sense to update the LICENSE and README files with summary like the above?
Dual licensing of said files is also theoretically possible, although a very thorny road so let's not go there.
