Ok, this would be plain wrong, if it were the case. Then the author would 
have to be contacted, in order to make things clear.

However :

   head -1 externals/pdogg/LICENSE.txt

gives :


which means LGPL.

You can't. If it can make a difference for the Pd community, then the 
authors of those files have to be contacted so that they rerelease the 
same things with a more precise statement of license than just putting a 
LICENSE.txt file there.

Yeah. That's also the best you could do with the info that you didn't 
have, but it still means that the info is incomplete.
