    Licenses: Clarify exceptions for standalone apps · 47ef860a
    Paul Barker authored and Tom Rini's avatar Tom Rini committed
    On 2010-01-27, an email [1] was sent to the mailing list by Wolfgang
    Denk which clarified the intended licensing exceptions for standalone
    applications. As the "export.h" header and the "stubs.c" source files
    are required to implement a standalone application, the intention was
    that these files be covered by the licensing exception. This is made
    clear in the following quotes from that email:
    	"exports.h" should be added to the "allowed" file list; there should
    	be no need to include "common.h". Eventually this needs fixing.
    	Patches are welcome.
    	"examples/standalone/stubs.c" should be added to the "allowed" file
    	list (the ppc_*jmp.S files are LGPLed).
    	There should be no doubts - the intention is clear, the current state
    	may need improvement. Help (read: patches) welcome.
