Comment (by barry.wardell):

 I'm looking into moving the thorns at the moment. It was suggested
 in[https://trac.einsteintoolkit.org/ticket/1801#comment:3 another ticket]
 the thorns be moved as follows:

 * PeriodicCarpet into Carpet
 * QuasiLocalMeasures into EinsteinAnalysis
 * SummationByParts into CactusNumerical (needs license to be LGPL) or
 Numerical if code does not adhere to the stricter Cactus rules (ie it
 really needs documenation for that)
 * Vectors into CactusUtils or Utils (same as SummationByParts)

 The first two are straightforward and I think their suggested new homes
 are fine. Any objections to switching SummationByParts and Vectors from
 GPL to LGPL? Would we need the agreement of all authors before doing so?
 Or is the copyright considered to be held by the authors listed in the
 README (there are no copyright headers in the source files)? The
 committers (and number of commits) to SummationByParts are: diener (77),
 schnetter (31), korobkin (8), eschnett (6), tiglio (4), knarf (1) and the
 committers to Vectors are: eschnett (70), svn_bwardell (11), knarf (3),
 barry.wardell (2), hinder (2).

 As far as Vectors is concerned, I'm fine with a switch to LGPL.
