We are relicensing the LDAP C SDK code (under mozilla/directory) to the triple license but we do not have permission to relicense some code. In most cases, the files are outdated and may simply be removed. Some bugs have already been filed for this work: bug 206776 - remove obsolete files under mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap/libraries/msdos/winsock bug 206777 - obsolete entries in mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap/build/.cvsignore

There is also one portion of mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap/Makefile.in that must be reimplemented by someone who has not looked at the previous changes to the file. I just backed out the contributed "code": mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap/Makefile.in new revision: 5.3; previous revision: 5.2 Back out contributed change that we do not have permission to relicense. Please do not look at what I just backed out. There is now a bug where an autoconf based build under mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap does not recurse into the necessary subdirectories.
I decided it makes sense to relicense this particular Makefile.in file now. Done: mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap/Makefile.in new revision: 5.4; previous revision: 5.3 NPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1 triple license. The bug still needs to be fixed of course, but now it will be clear that the contributed fix is subject to the triple license.
Mark: you can check that fix back in (and any other code you removed because Chris Seawood wrote it). He kindly gave permission to relicense yesterday. Gerv
Great! Restored: mozilla/directory/c-sdk/ldap/Makefile.in new revision: 5.5; previous revision: 5.4 Put back the contributed change that we previously did not have permission to relicense; we now have permission.
Dependent bugs have been fixed on the trunk... marking this one fixed also.
