Our ultimate goal is to relicense all the Mozilla code under an MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license (except for a few contributed files which will remain under their current BSD-style licenses). For more information on this ongoing effort see the Mozilla Relicensing FAQ. Please read that before asking questions in the comments."

Why are the NPL'd files not being changed to MPL while we're at it? I thought that it was policy that the NPL was obsolete and would be replaced by the MPL over time.

Thanks in advance for any info, Stuart.
