Well as long as we maintain these versions we will provide the fixes in
a way that it does not affec the license. In most cases this is a
For old versions you are of our own but the GPL allows you to change the
code as you like. Note that - in contrast to small bug fixes -
backporting large parts of a 1.4.8 etc to 1.4.7 will also copy the GPLv3
and thus effectivly putting the 1.4.7 under the GPLv3.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
