My plan is to just copy the GPL v2 one from the GCC tree. Is that reasonable?

We're building against GCC4.3 which is GPLv3.
Comment 2 User image (dormant account) 2008-03-19 11:01:18 PDT
Thanks for clarifying the GCC license mess. I'll copy COPYING3 file from GCC since it's v3 now.

Just checking -- 

this is code that exists quite separately from the code we build and ship as Mozilla technology?

Is it actually required that your work be licensed under the GPL? Or is it that this seems to make sense given GCC?

This code is separate from Mozilla.

It has to be GPLv3, because it is including headers and linking functions from GCC.
Comment 5 User image Mitchell Baker 2008-03-19 15:42:45 PDT
OK, thanks, that sounds pretty clear.

Comment 6 User image (dormant account) 2008-04-03 12:52:29 PDT
Benjamin is suggesting that we should use GPLv2&later since we'll also be compiling against gcc 4.2

Pushed README, COPYING files. I would rather not pollute the source files, unless someone can provide me with a 1-2line lawyerspeak header.
