Apologies for the confusion surrounding LynuxWorks' inclusion of the JFFS
package. There really is no intention of changing the copyright or license
whatsoever. I think we've been a little untidy and possibly rude as you've
pointed out. The delimiter was merely a way of ensuring we could pull the
code in/out with ease. That license field in the RPM is just plain
wrong. With our next release we'll clean that up and look for other spots
where we've messed up so we can better communicate the correct
information. Please try to rest assured that none of the JFFS sources will
touch LynxOS either.
