No, I got that wrong. Sorry!  It is not completely under ALv2, some key code
is still LPGLv3.

Most of the AOO ia2 branch has ALv2 license applied, but some of the key
IAccessibile2 code, e.g. the winaccessibility directory,  bears LPGLv3
license (with an IBM copyright). Makes sense as the primary development is
being handled by IBM Beijing. Adjusting the headers with ALv2 license seems
to be done in bulk from time to time, but has not yet been applied to the
core IAccessible2 elements of the branch.

But at least it is all licensed as open source, and believe TDF ESC review
feasibility of using its implementation of IAccessible2 can at least be

Hopefully it will not mean waiting until the ia2 branch is merged into the
AOO  trunk  (in preparation for an 4.1.0 release) for assignment of the
obligitory ALv2 license.  The IAccessible2 native bridge looks to require
considerable changes to the entire UNO Accdessibility API, and that has
potential to impact the OS X (NX)  and Linux (ATK AT-SPI) bridges.

Better sooner than later to resolve any adverse impact.
