Ok. Is it still fine if distributors of NetworkManager do not update
to GPLv3? Just curious because the NetworkManager people were
concerned about this as well.

Actually I was looking at the compatibility matrix on
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing and it looked to me that
libroute had to be under LGPLv3+. It is highly possible that I am
wrong. But if the matrix is wrong I would want to notify Fedora since
they take these issues quite seriously.
