Gary Byers announced on openmcl-devel that OpenMCL would now be distributed under the LLGPL.

The LLGPL is a preamble to the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), which was developed by Franz Inc to clarify how the LGPL applies to Lisp programs and to amend certain LGPL requirements. Notably, the LLGPL waives the LGPL requirement that applications be distributed in a form that would allow the end user to "link to" newer interface-compatible versions of the "library"; this requirement would seemingly force developers to distribute their applications in some sub-optimal format (e.g., as a set of FASL files or something ...)
