According to private discussions this was on their explicit request to
make it really clear.  It has already been suggested to the OpenPGP WG
that we could ask for an explicit license for the OpenPGP protocol.  Why
not also ask for a similar special license for Libgcrypt?  Well, that
might end up with explicit licenses for all free software libraries.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
