Recently we started working on clarifying the license situation with
the PKGBUILDs in abslibre. Many PKGBUILDs are probably not copyrightable
but to avoid any uncertainty several Parabola contributors already
relicensed their contributions to the packages under the CC0 license.

Are you OK for licensing your work on packages under the CC0 licenses?

Since you appear to have written several PKGBUILDs from scratch
(specially the ones related to Java support in Parabola), it would
allow to add licenses headers on them and on PKGBUILDs derived from

PS: As for the patches they are typically under the same licenses than
    the upstream projects, so we don't need to do anything special here.

PPS: I've added the Parabola mailing list in CC so your response could
     be archived publicly, and other people could also comment on this
     mail if needed.
