MariaDB License Clarification



My name is Ryan Coe and I've been maintaining the MariaDB package for Buildroot (https://buildroot.org). In commit 577915def8d39223aa23a06f898e11e82e72365a, COPYING.LESSER was removed. Our packaging currently states the MariaDB license as GPL-2.0 (server), GPL-2.0 with FLOSS exception (GPL client library), LGPL-2.0 (LGPL client library). Could I please get clarification on how the different components are licensed? Also, the GitHub page is still referencing COPYING.LESSER in the README. Thank you.
