Subject Re: hwpfilter/source/ksc5601.h - header from GNU c library
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2011 04:04:53 GMT
Oliver-Rainer;

I looked at the files: the GPL'd file has
only two records and the names don't match the
ones in the XFree86 file.

We shouldn't rename anything in the header, but
change the sources instead. It's not difficult
because both names appear only on hcode.cpp.

cheers,

Pedro.
