[Fedora-legal-list] Mesa licenses



Hi,

While looking into copyright notices in files included in xine-lib, I noticed 
that it contains a private "myglext.h" header which has the "SGI Free 
Software License B, Version 1.1" license notice.  This license is currently 
listed as non-free in Wiki and FSF's pages.

For xine-lib we can just disable the OpenGL output plugin - I gather it's 
non-essential - but I also noticed that this license notice is present in a 
lot of files included in various files in mesa-* packages, including public 
header files, which sounds like a much bigger problem.  Some of those files 
have changed to MIT-like licenses in Mesa 7.x, but a lot of the SGI FreeB 
licensed ones remain.

Thoughts?
