Quoting Brenda Bell <k15a-list-linuxchix at theotherbell.com>:

> I wrote a Java date control for a personal project I was working on and
> decided to release it to the public under the GPL.  I figured if I couldn't
> find an existing one I really liked, others might be in the same boat. 
> Apparently I was correct, because I just received an email from someone
> asking me if I would consider re-releasing it under LGPL.  I understand the
> differences between the two licenses so there aren't any issues in that
> regard.
> However, I can't find any information that definitively states that it's 
> legal to arbitrarily change the license from GPL to LGPL... or whether
> there are any special steps I need to take in order to do so.
> Does anyone have any good references on this stuff?
