comment How are GPL-compatible licenses like MIT usable in GPL programs without being subject to the copyleft provision?
@GlenH7 Sure, but would they even be allowed to relicense Foo under the GPL? Sublicensing would be fine, but then they would also have to keep the Boost license in Bar+Foo, would they not?

"However, if they take Bar+Foo, delete Bar and only use +Foo then they are still bound by the terms of the GPL since Bar+Foo was GPL'd." Are you sure? Foo was still licensed under the Boost license. As I understand it, the Boost license shouldn't be removed, even when combined with GPL code. ("The [...] above license grant, this restriction and the following disclaimer, must be included in all copies of the Software, in whole or in part, and all derivative works of the Software [...]")
