  19. Excerpt from upstream's README:
  20.  
  21.     The library is distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser
  22.     General Public License (LGPL); see the file COPYING.LIB for the
  23.     actual terms.  The helper programs (gcryptrnd and getrandom) as
  24.     well as the documentation are distributed under the terms of the
  25.     GNU General Public License (GPL); see the file COPYING for teh
  26.     actual terms.
  27.  
  28.     This library used to be available under the GPL - this was changed
  29.     with version 1.1.7 with the rationale that there are now many free
  30.     crypto libraries available and many of them come with capabilities
  31.     similar to Libcrypt.  We decided that to foster the use of
  32.     cryptography in Free Software an LGPLed library would make more
  33.     sense because it avoids problems due to license incompatibilities
  34.     between some Free Software licenses and the GPL.
  35.  
  36.     Please note that in many cases it is better for a library to be
  37.     licensed under the GPL, so that it provides an advantage for free
  38.     software projects.  The Lesser GPL is so named because it does
  39.     less to protect the freedom of the users of the code that it
  40.     covers.  See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html for
  41.     more explanation.
