Indeed, this is a very welcome announcement detail and I encourage
the developers to continue to post such high-level changelogs in the

By the way, would it be possible to add an option to link against external
ELPA library. Bundling libraries is prohibited in Fedora.
One more thing: could you add a licence header to all source files?
Some of the files have statements suggesting they're not licenced under
have this statement:
! Commercial use is prohibited
! without the explicit permission of the author.
Actually, the contain only a copyright statement and no explicit
permission to distribute (modified) versions of the file. I'd say
this makes cp2k non-free, so please change those statements to state
they're covered by GPLv2+ and preferably add a licence header to each
source file to avoid any doubts.
