i am very excited about the webkit project. i think some of its core
libraries are quite interesting outside of webkit/webcore. especially
the text and encoding part is interesting to me.
but i have to say that i am a little bit confused by the different licenses:
WebCore/platform/text/StringHash.h is under GPL2+ whereas
/WebCore/platform/text/TextCodecICU.h has a BSDish license.
Is this mix of licenses needed?
Is it possible to link a non-free-software application against e.g.
WebCore without getting into troubles?
thanks in advance
