in some KDE applications (for example yakuake) there is a quite uncommon GPL
header in the source files, which reads like this:

In the review for knights ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=674180
) the question how to handle this came up. What would be the appropriate
License tag in the spec file?
