Mike Declerck has already addressed this issue on the mailing list,
but I'll reiterate.  The LVM kernel driver is GPL, the LVM userland
tools are GPL.  We have no intention to change this, and even if we
wanted to we couldn't since lots of people outside Sistina have
contributed.

If it makes people feel happier I will accept patches that add their
names to the copyright notices (assuming they've made significant
contributions).
