    The copy in gnulib/lib/ CVS says GPL.  Can we re-import the LGPL
    version from glibc?  

But it's intentional that the gnulib copies are GPL.  (It was Paul's
suggestion.)  We go to some trouble (in srclist-update) to make that
happen.  We don't just want to LGPL them.  They should be dual-licensed,
if a change is made.

    Who are the authors of minmax.h?  

Isn't it a question for all gnulib files?  Just dealing with the files
that you happen to need right at this instant doesn't seem good.

    Before asking Richard, I think I need to have a concrete question.

The question I see is whether it is ok with him if all gnulib files
(some of which are originally GPL'd) are dual GPL/LGPL.  minmax.h may be
an example, but surely it's not the whole issue.

This will require (re)explaining to him what gnulib is, what it's for,
how it is assembled, etc.
