Hi Nikos,

For gnulib support, please CC bug-gnulib, don't write to me in private.
The mailing list is the main instrument to share know-how and reach agreement
among gnulib developers.
I was prevented from installing these two modules in gnutls due to
their license. It seems that the License field is missing, and thus
gnulib assumes it is GPL. Is that intentional? If not I have a small
patch to add license to these modules.
Your patch is about the modules
'unictype/property-default-ignorable-code-point-tests' and
'unictype/property-not-a-character-tests'. These are tests modules.
Per the documentation
<https://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/manual/html_node/Copyright.html>
they are indeed under GPL and should stay so.

Did you get an error while running gnulib-tool? Don't try to list
the tests modules on the command-line of gnulib-tool; instead use
the option --with-tests to collect the tests of the LGPLed modules.

If this hint was not helpful, then please show your gnulib-tool invocation
and its results.

You are right, it was another issue that confused me.
