Subject: [OMPI devel] Question about opal/mca/memory/linux licensing
From: Denis Nagorny (nagorny.denis_at_[hidden])

Hello,

Investigating memory management implementation in OpenMPI I found that
opal's memory module licensed under Lesser GPL terms. This subsystem is
linked into openMPI library. As far as I know this fact should enforce
Lesser GPL license on libopen-rte.so and libopen-pal.so. Could anybody
explain me how is it possible that OpenMPI have BSD license, please?
