    77=== Overview

    9 This is a binding for libdbus 1.0 (and hopefully 1.2.x).  DBus is a popular IPC (inter-process communication) protocol which is often used between system components (for example hald informs applications when new hardware becomes available, gpsd informs apps when the location has changed, or an application requests gsmd to place a phone call).

    4343=== License

    45 libdbus has historically had a GPL license.  The [[http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/dbus|dbus homepage]] refers to an incomplete "planned X11/MIT license change due to a couple of license holders who have yet to respond. For the most part this license change is being pursued to simplify licensing issues and fix a couple of licensing corner cases. When this happens D-Bus will be released under the 1.2.0 version."  So this egg is released under the MIT license, however if you link it with a version prior to 1.2.0, then you are probably bound by the terms of the GPL.
     45libdbus has historically had a GPL license.  Later they switched to AFL / GPL dual license.  This egg is released under the MIT license, which is compatible with AFL.
