Hello Dimitri,

The only exception that exists is for OpenH323 and PWlib. Since Yate 
users need g729 codec from qodec there is an understanding between Null 
Team which makes Yate and RAI the company that makes Qodec that no user 
will have any problem to use the qcodec piece of software. So there is 
some sort of one way exception made by Null Team only and applies only 
to the code made by Null Team (not all Yate belongs to Null).
