Since the very beginning and up to now strace is distributed under the
terms of a BSD-3-Clause license, which is a permissive  software license.
This situation is going to change as I'm going to change the terms
of my future contributions to a copyleft  license.
My current plan is to provide strace test suite under the terms of
the GNU General Public License version 2 or later (GPL-2.0-or-later),
and to provide all the rest of strace under the terms of the GNU Lesser
General Public License version 2.1 or later (LGPL-2.1-or-later).
I could have chosen GPL-2.0-or-later for the whole project, but
this would complicate things in the future if we ever manage
to create a library out of strace.
You can find the proposed change at  and .
