I just switched everything in Subversion from LGPL to MIT, at glyph's command.

The policy that he outlined:

 1) All contributions or inclusions must be MIT licensed.
 1.a) If you want to include someone else's code in Twisted, it still
has to be MIT licensed, but keep their own copyright notice intact.
 2) Anybody who's a contributor and wants their name listed as a
copyright holder can have their name added to the LICENSE file (I
copied everyone from CREDITS into LICENSE initally).
 3) Put this preamble at the top of files:

# Copyright (c) 2001-2004 Twisted Matrix Laboratories.
# See LICENSE for details.

Have fun.
