The code was split from a (larger) repository to a smaller number of
repositories. As these now contain even very old code, there may be
incompatible licenses (mostly variants of [L]GPL and incompatible
versions) hiding in smaller number of files.

Upstream has mostly cleaned it up (and some were done thanks to the
notices the legal team sent us), but there might still some lurking
around.

Thank you for the information. It is reassuring to know that great care is being taken in the legal/licensing reviews.
