3
4 Preamble
5
6The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
7Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
8semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
9while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
10the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
11reasonable modifications.
12
13Definitions:
14
15 "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
16 Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
17 created through textual modification.
18
19 "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
20 modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
21 of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
22
23 "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
24 copyrights for the package.
25
26 "You" is you, if you`re thinking about copying or distributing
27 this Package.
28
29 "Distribution fee" is a fee you charge for providing a copy
30 of this Package to another party.
31
32 "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the right to
33 use the item, though there may be fees involved in handling the
34 item. It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute
35 it under the same conditions they received it.
36
371. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
38Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
39duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
40
412. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
42derived from the Public Domain, or those made Freely Available, or from
43the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still be
44considered the Standard Version.
45
463. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided
47that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and
48when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
49following:
50
51 a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
52 Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an
53 equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major network
54 archive site allowing unrestricted access to them, or by allowing the
55 Copyright Holder to include your modifications in the Standard Version
56 of the Package.
57
58 b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
59
60 c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict
61 with standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide
62 a separate manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly
63 documents how it differs from the Standard Version.
64
65 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
66
67 e) permit and encourge anyone who receives a copy of the modified Package
68 permission to make your modifications Freely Available
69 in some specific way.
70
71
724. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
73executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
74
75 a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
76 together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
77 to get the Standard Version.
78
79 b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
80 the Package with your modifications.
81
82 c) give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
83 document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together
84 with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
85
86 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
87
88 e) offer the machine-readable source of the Package, with your
89 modifications, by mail order.
90
915. You may charge a distribution fee for any distribution of this Package.
92If you offer support for this Package, you may charge any fee you choose
93for that support. You may not charge a license fee for the right to use
94this Package itself. You may distribute this Package in aggregate with
95other (possibly commercial and possibly nonfree) programs as part of a
96larger (possibly commercial and possibly nonfree) software distribution,
97and charge license fees for other parts of that software distribution,
98provided that you do not advertise this Package as a product of your own.
99If the Package includes an interpreter, You may embed this Package`s
100interpreter within an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be
101construed as a mere form of aggregation, provided that the complete
102Standard Version of the interpreter is so embedded.
103
1046. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
105output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
106under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever generated
107them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
108Package. If such scripts or library files are aggregated with this
109Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of producing a
110binary executable image, then distribution of such an image shall
111neither be construed as a distribution of this Package nor shall it
112fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do
113not represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
114Package.
115
1167. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
117languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
118emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
119Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
120equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
121not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
122regression tests for the language.
123
1248. Aggregation of the Standard Version of the Package with a commercial
125distribution is always permitted provided that the use of this Package
126is embedded; that is, when no overt attempt is made to make this Package`s
127interfaces visible to the end user of the commercial distribution.
128Such use shall not be construed as a distribution of this Package.
129
1309. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
131products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
132
13310. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
134IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
135WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
