So I exxaggerated. :)
But like Bob said, the above link points to a file that clearly says
right in it that it's licensed under the GPL (v2 or later). There's a
similar link for every other file in LS, provided by the LS people
So, if you want a fully GPLed version of CVS LS, just go through and
download every file with those links and you've got it.
