License. (see file LGPL for details)
However, the server side has optional GPL dependencies. These include the
libsamplerate (for core libraries) and bluez (for the bluetooth proximity helper
program) libraries, although others may also be included in the future. If
PulseAudio is compiled with these optional components, this effectively
downgrades the license of the server part to GPL (see file GPL for details),
exercising section 3 of the LGPL. In such circumstances, you should treat the
client library (libpulse) of PulseAudio as being LGPL licensed and the server
part (libpulsecore) as being GPL licensed. Since the PulseAudio daemon, tests,
various utilities/helpers and the modules link to libpulsecore and/or the
afore mentioned optional GPL dependencies they are of course also GPL licensed
also in this scenario.
