Re: samba license change

libsmbclient is used in modules/smb-method.c, which carries a GPLv2+ notice. (Dunno if omission of GPLv2+ qualifies as a bug in gnome-vfs2's License tag.)
Furthermore, the smb module is run in the daemon, so the license of it
doesn't affect applications linking to gnome-vfs.

But if it's run *in the daemon*, and the daemon is LGPLv2 (only)....


Not a problem then as LGPLv2 may be converted to GPLv2+, and thus is GPLv3 compatible.
