I don't known what you found on github, which seems to be an inofficial
mirror of GnuPG (and I do not want to check that specific commit).
However, dumpsexp.c is indeed under the GPLv3.  There is no real reason
for this and we could change the license if that really makes a
difference for you.  You can also distribute without that debug helper.

I have not checked but in case you find another GPL tool, please let us
know via a feature request on our bug tracker.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
