Greetings!  OK, that's enough for me -- GCL's migration to LGPLv3
will not occur until maxima and acl2 choose to do so as well, if

IMHO, I would encourage both projects to consider this, as the GPLv3
is actually more flexible in many circumstances.  For example, were
these systems GPLv3, my understanding is that there would be no
insistence that all their library dependencies also be v3, unlike the
case with v2.  v2 is more 'viral' in this sense, and the v3 'upgrade'
was intended to address this shortcoming.

Take care,
