IANAL, but does "compatible with the GPL" in the MIT license [used by

regarding the GPL), but I'm still not sure. Does anyone know? Thanks
in advance.

You can distribute MIT-licensed or 2-clause BSD-licensed code with a GPL project as long as you comply with the licence (keep the disclaimer and list of conditions, etc.), but I'd assume the GPL cannot apply to the MIT/BSD-licensed parts because it'd be self-contradictory (the MIT or BSD licence would pretty much say you can do what you like with the code while the GPL would say otherwise).

But IANAL either.
