All new contributions must be LGPLv2.1+ licensed. Using a more liberal license
compatible to LGPLv2.1+ is also ok.
If changes are done on GPL code, must come with the implicit agreement that the
-project can relicense the code to LGPLv2.1+ at a later point without asking the
-contributor. This is a safeguard for making potential relicensing of remaining
-GPL code to LGPLv2.1+ easier.
