Unhappy License is not stated on GitHub sources

Hello,

While looking at the source code you've posted on GitHub, I see that you've used some code that is licensed under the GNU Public License 2.1 which means the rest of your code has to have a compatible license to be legal. Am I correct in assuming that the project is GPL 2.1+?

https://github.com/lulzapps/OwlShare...tils/QSgml.cpp is LGPL, I guess it isn't straight GPL after all but still the license isn't stated on the project.

Ah... I will look into it. Worst case scenario, it'll have to be ripped out and I can probably use Qt's HTML parser.
