These include an OpenSSL exception.

This has a sort-of OpenSSL exception.

This is a collection of different things; some list an OpenSSL exception
(and may be the only ones that use OpenSSL).

No mention of an exception.

LGPL not GPL (not sure what that means for OpenSSL linking though).

Dual-licensed GPLv2 and BSD.

I believe Artistic is okay with OpenSSL.

Boy, this looks like a mess.  No overall license that I can find
(looking at dhcpv6-0.10-42.fc7), most files under a BSD-style (3 clause)
license from IBM, and one file that is patched out under LGPL.  The
libdhcp6client subdirectory files are mixed as well; some have no
license and some have GPL (no version).

> xen: GPL

Some files are dual-licensed BSD; I'm not sure which link to OpenSSL.


This is a good example of why license changes need to be clearly
announced and researched.
