Cactus (the flesh) is distributed under the LGPL. However, the file src/piraha/smart_ptr.hpp has a statement that it is distributed under the Boost licence. This should be rectified.

    I assume the correct thing to do is remove the copyright notice, as it does not appear the LGPL or license info is not mentioned in the flesh source code--with the exception of src/gnu and src/main/Startup.c or src/main/Banner.c. Yes?

    The "correct" thing is (1) to confirm that LGPL is a valid licence for this code, and then (2) to remove this licence note, so that the flesh's licence will cover this code as well (see Cactus/COPYRIGHT).

    It's not quite the LGPL, but it's veryvery similar, and should probably be replaced by the LGPL, but that's for another time.
