   Putting libroute under GPLv3+ is going to be a problem because
   GNOME NetworkManager is under GPLv2+. I suggest we put libroute
   under LGPLv3+.

GPLv2+ is compatible with GPLv3+, so I see no problem with that.  If
we are to export a library, then I want it to be under the GPL.

   NetworkManager is important because it is one program which will
   benefit from libroute. NetworkManager is very much Linux kernel
   specific, and does not run on *BSD. libroute can fix that and the
   FreeBSD and NetworkManager folks are enthusiastic about it.

Have you discussed this with the NetworkManager and FreeBSD people?
What did they say?

Please keep in mind that you must discuss any plans you have with us
first before you promise people things.
