This is not entirely true anymore. If we ("we" as in Samba
Team) ship this, it becomes ours. The functional requirement
to include ccan might be the final tipping point to not ship
tdb1/2 at all anymore and require everyone to download,
compile and install first the ccan modules, then tdb and
then Samba themselves. Something that I would very strongly
argue against, but as we can not work without ccan modules
which can not carry the licensing headers that we require it
might be the only way.
