User-agent: Mutt/1.5.11

We have released a new discussion draft for version 3 of the GNU Lesser
General Public License (LGPLv3).  Since the license is currently written as
a set of additional permissions on top of GPLv3, a number of terms have
been updated to reflect changes in the GPLv3 draft released last week.
Additionally, we have made a few small adjustments to clarify particular

We received some very helpful comments on the previous discussion draft of
LGPL, and unfortunately we were not able to come to a final decision about
how to address all of those before releasing this draft.  They are still
under consideration, and will be handled fully in a future draft, before
the final release of the license.  In the meantime, we hope this new text
will provide the free software community with an up-to-date base for
additional feedback.

You can learn more about the new draft at

text, rationale for the changes we've made, instructions for submitting
comments, and more.  We look forward to your feedback.
