Software License "Liberty" v2

Hi!

I'm just preparing an GPLv2 open source project for release on github. The program runs on a STM32F4 and uses CMSIS, StdPeriph Library and the USB Device Library.

I'd like to include verbatim, unmodified copies of the libraries in a "Libs" subdirectory of my project repository, so that users may compile and update the project with the least amount of hassle.

After having read the "Liberty" (??) license, I'm quite confused -- does that mean that open source projects may not include the .c-Files in the project repository? What about header & object files?

This would be a major PITA, and would seriously harm any open source effort for the STM32 platform.

best regards,
Thomas Kindler
