Well, there's a bit of a disconnect between what we have in git, and
what we ship in the katamari.  The katamari is MIT/BSD-only, but some of
the git modules have been less permissive: xf86-input-synaptics used to
be GPL, xrestop, et al.  xf86-input-wacom is GPL as well, and is
currently not hosted in /git/xorg, but I expect it will at some stage.

vendors can pick and choose what they want to distribute, but it's such
an emotive and time-worn fight that I'm not sure it's worth the
