6 I would prefer a single license for all ebuilds.
7 GPL-2+ or GPL-2 or GPL-... does not matter to me, I am willing to sign,
8 that all my contributions may be licensed also as GPL-...
10 IANAL, but I would expect that the license does not change anything for
11 trivial ebuilds.
12 The level of creativity ("Schöpfungshöhe") is not high enough for most
13 ebuilds.
14 Most ebuild contain only an obvious recipe to install the software.
