      Description

      There is a Debian bug against moodle:

      http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=526543

      which is basically asking for clarification of this blurb:

      The FLV player is by Jeroen Wijering - www.jeroenwijering.com
      and included in Moodle by his permission under the GPL.

      (from filter/mediaplugin/flvplayer.README.txt)

      So ideally I'd like to expand this into a proper copyright statement in that README.txt file and close the Debian bug in the next point release.

      Would you happen to have the original email around so that we can see whether that permission is to release this code under:

      1- any version of the GPL
      2- GPL version 2 or later
      3- GPL version 2 only

      Also, I'm assuming that both mp3player and flvplayer are covered by this permission. Is that correct?
