From: Luis R. Rodriguez <mcgrof-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: [PATCH] ath5k - License clarification
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general
Date: Friday 31st August 2007 16:18:37 UTC (over 10 years ago)
Attached patch amends the ath5k license as per review from SFLC with
the following changes:

  * Makes sure that Reyk's copyright and license notice appears
    correctly in each file that was derived from his work.

  * Makes sure that Jiri's changes were released under a permissive,
    modified-BSD license, as he indicated that was his preference.

  * Makes sure that Nick's changes were released under
    GPLv2-or-later, as he indicated that was his preference.

  * Makes sure that all files clearly have the any GPL notices on
    top, but include the proper BSD-like notices below when required.

   * Adds Devicescape attribution to ath5k_base.c

  * Sets the MODULE_LICENSE to GPL, because with Nick's changes
    included under only GPL, the module can only be available under GPL.

  * Adds Nick to the list of MODULE_AUTHORs because his changes
    are substantial.
