As I mentioned in Bug 1064602, I xrdp upstream developer want to merge your avahi patch but the license needs to be changed.

xrdp is licensed under GPLv2 before however, xrdp switched the license to Apache License 2.0 in 2012.  Maybe as avahi patch made before the license change, it is licensed under GPLv2.

Can someone contact the author of xrdp/xrdp_avahi.c or copyright holder and request to change the license to Apache License 2.0?
