9Preamble
10
11This license establishes the terms under which a given free software
12Package may be copied, modified, distributed, and/or redistributed.
13The intent is that the Copyright Holder maintains some artistic
14control over the development of that Package while still keeping the
15Package available as open source and free software.
16
17You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly outside of this
18license directly with the Copyright Holder of a given Package. If the
19terms of this license do not permit the full use that you propose to
20make of the Package, you should contact the Copyright Holder and seek
21a different licensing arrangement.
22

25 "Copyright Holder" means the individual(s) or organization(s)
26 named in the copyright notice for the entire Package.
27
28 "Contributor" means any party that has contributed code or other
29 material to the Package, in accordance with the Copyright Holder`s
30 procedures.

32 "You" and "your" means any person who would like to copy,
33 distribute, or modify the Package.
34
35 "Package" means the collection of files distributed by the

41 accessible to anyone else, or in the case of a company or
42 organization, to others outside of your company or organization.
43
44 "Distributor Fee" means any fee that you charge for Distributing
45 this Package or providing support for this Package to another
46 party. It does not mean licensing fees.
47
48 "Standard Version" refers to the Package if it has not been
49 modified, or has been modified only in ways explicitly requested
50 by the Copyright Holder.
51
52 "Modified Version" means the Package, if it has been changed, and
53 such changes were not explicitly requested by the Copyright
54 Holder.
55

61 configuration files for the Package.
62
63 "Compiled" form means the compiled bytecode, object code, binary,

68Permission for Use and Modification Without Distribution
69
70(1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create and use
71Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction, provided that
72you do not Distribute the Modified Version.
73
74
75Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version
76
77(2) You may Distribute verbatim copies of the Source form of the
78Standard Version of this Package in any medium without restriction,
79either gratis or for a Distributor Fee, provided that you duplicate
80all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. At
81your discretion, such verbatim copies may or may not include a
82Compiled form of the Package.
83
84(3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
85modifications made available from the Copyright Holder. The resulting
86Package will still be considered the Standard Version, and as such
87will be subject to the Original License.
88
89
90Distribution of Modified Versions of the Package as Source
91
92(4) You may Distribute your Modified Version as Source (either gratis
93or for a Distributor Fee, and with or without a Compiled form of the
94Modified Version) provided that you clearly document how it differs
95from the Standard Version, including, but not limited to, documenting
96any non-standard features, executables, or modules, and provided that
97you do at least ONE of the following:
98
99 (a) make the Modified Version available to the Copyright Holder
100 of the Standard Version, under the Original License, so that the
101 Copyright Holder may include your modifications in the Standard
102 Version.
103
104 (b) ensure that installation of your Modified Version does not
105 prevent the user installing or running the Standard Version. In
106 addition, the Modified Version must bear a name that is different
107 from the name of the Standard Version.
108
109 (c) allow anyone who receives a copy of the Modified Version to
110 make the Source form of the Modified Version available to others
111 under
112
113 (i) the Original License or
114
115 (ii) a license that permits the licensee to freely copy,
116 modify and redistribute the Modified Version using the same
117 licensing terms that apply to the copy that the licensee
118 received, and requires that the Source form of the Modified
119 Version, and of any works derived from it, be made freely
120 available in that license fees are prohibited but Distributor
121 Fees are allowed.
122
123
124Distribution of Compiled Forms of the Standard Version
125or Modified Versions without the Source
126
127(5) You may Distribute Compiled forms of the Standard Version without
128the Source, provided that you include complete instructions on how to
129get the Source of the Standard Version. Such instructions must be
130valid at the time of your distribution. If these instructions, at any
131time while you are carrying out such distribution, become invalid, you
132must provide new instructions on demand or cease further distribution.
133If you provide valid instructions or cease distribution within thirty
134days after you become aware that the instructions are invalid, then
135you do not forfeit any of your rights under this license.
136
137(6) You may Distribute a Modified Version in Compiled form without
138the Source, provided that you comply with Section 4 with respect to
139the Source of the Modified Version.
140
141
142Aggregating or Linking the Package
143
144(7) You may aggregate the Package (either the Standard Version or
145Modified Version) with other packages and Distribute the resulting
146aggregation provided that you do not charge a licensing fee for the
147Package. Distributor Fees are permitted, and licensing fees for other
148components in the aggregation are permitted. The terms of this license
149apply to the use and Distribution of the Standard or Modified Versions
150as included in the aggregation.
151
152(8) You are permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions with
153other works, to embed the Package in a larger work of your own, or to
154build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of applications that
155include the Package, and Distribute the result without restriction,
156provided the result does not expose a direct interface to the Package.
157
158
159Items That are Not Considered Part of a Modified Version
160
161(9) Works (including, but not limited to, modules and scripts) that
162merely extend or make use of the Package, do not, by themselves, cause
163the Package to be a Modified Version. In addition, such works are not
164considered parts of the Package itself, and are not subject to the
165terms of this license.
166
167
168General Provisions
169
170(10) Any use, modification, and distribution of the Standard or
171Modified Versions is governed by this Artistic License. By using,
