You need to

Which component(s) or source packages is the licensing change request about?
Which area is the component in (if you know)? See the openness progress reports
What is the current licensing of the component?
What licensing would you like it to be and why? Examples can be:
open source and openly developed (move to gitorious), open source (select a

Which project(s) would benefit from this licensing change request?
Projects that need to talk to BME and query battery state. MeeGo would benefit
by being able to use libbmeipc to implement a full battery status applet and
btw if there are genuinely sensitive items in these headers (i.e. "this could
ruin your battery or phone if you abuse it" type stuff) then its acceptable to
replace the sensitive bits with comments such as //stuff for doing <blah>
removed because it is sensitive
(Also see http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=784443&postcount=32 )
For query battery state you can use this sh script:
Now on kernel mailinglist is series of patches kernel driver bq27x00_battery
(power_supply) for query all battery properties. I posted patches for Maemo
(kernel, battery desktop widget) here:
header files + libbmeipc library is now open:
Should be this bug closed as fixed?
