Hello Pacemaker Admins,

We have a query regarding licensing for pacemaker header files

As per the given link http://clusterlabs.org/wiki/License, it is mentioned that "Pacemaker programs are licensed under the GPLv2+<http://hg.clusterlabs.org/pacemaker/stable-1.0/file/tip/COPYING> (version 2 or later of the GPL) and its headers and libraries are under the less restrictive LGPLv2+<http://hg.clusterlabs.org/pacemaker/stable-1.0/file/tip/COPYING.LIB> (version 2 or later of the LGPL) ."

However, website link http://clusterlabs.org/doxygen/pacemaker/2927a0f9f25610c331b6a137c846fec27032c9ea/cib_8h.html, states otherwise.
Cib.h header file needed to be included in order to configure pacemaker using C API. But the header file for cib.h states that the header file is under GPL license
This seems to be conflicting the statement regarding header file license.

In addition, which similar issue has been discussed in the past http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linuxha/pacemaker/75967, no additional details on the resolution.

Need your inputs on licensing to proceed further.

Thanks & Regards
Santosh Bidaralli
