The source code for PyXDG as a whole is under LGPLv2 (as per the
COPYING file and the license field in setup.py). However, xdg/Menu.py
has a GPL header.
I guess this was a simple oversight from someone whose editor used a
template for new files, but obviously I can't change it without
checking. Can anyone confirm that this was an oversight? Or if it was
deliberate, please can I relicense the file as LGPL to fit in with the
rest of PyXDG? I'd much rather not rehash the great license debate,
but I don't think that strong copyleft is the best choice for code
implementing a specification like this.
