+ <Arne`> There might be a copyright problem: <nalaginrut> well, there seems
+ BSD-4clauses in the code:
+ http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/hurd.git/tree/ufs/alloc.c
+ <Arne`> braunr, tschwinge: Do you have any info on that? 4-clause BSD and
+ GPL on the same code are a license incompatibility…
+ <tschwinge> Arne`: I've put it onto my (long) TODO list.
+ <tschwinge> Easiest solution might be: rm -rf ufs.
+ <nalaginrut> will these affected code rewritten? or just modify license?
+ <mark_weaver> only the regents of the University of California could choose
+ to modify the license.
+ <youpi> nalaginrut: one can't modify a licence if one is not the author
+ <youpi> we can simply dump the code
+ <mark_weaver> s/author/owner/
+ <tschwinge> As I suppose ufs is unused/untested for a decade or so, I'd
+ have no issues with simply removing it from the tree, together with
+ ufs-fsck and ufs-utils.
+ <pinotree> tschwinge: or maybe extract the ufs stuff in an own repo, to be
+ imported as branch in incubator or own hurd/ufs.git?
+ <tschwinge> Sure, why not.
