2The Open Group Test Suite License

4Preamble
5
6The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which
7a Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains
8some semblance of artistic control over the development of the
9package, while giving the users of the package the right to use and
10distribute the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus
11the right to make reasonable modifications.
12
13Testing is essential for proper development and maintenance of
14standards-based products.
15
16For buyers: adequate conformance testing leads to reduced
17integration costs and protection of investments in applications,
18software and people.
19
20For software developers: conformance testing of platforms and
21middleware greatly reduces the cost of developing and maintaining
22multi-platform application software.
23
24For suppliers: In-depth testing increases customer satisfaction and
25keeps development and support costs in check. API conformance is
26highly measurable and suppliers who claim it must be able to
27substantiate that claim.
28
29As such, since these are benchmark measures of conformance, we feel
30the integrity of test tools is of importance. In order to preserve
31the integrity of the existing conformance modes of this test
32package and to permit recipients of modified versions of this
33package to run the original test modes, this license requires that
34the original test modes be preserved.
35
36If you find a bug in one of the standards mode test cases, please
37let us know so we can feed this back into the original, and also
38raise any specification issues with the appropriate bodies (for
39example the POSIX committees).

41Definitions:
42
43 "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
44 Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
45 created through textual modification.
46 "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
47 modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
48 of the Copyright Holder.
49 "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
50 copyrights for the package. "You" is you, if you`re thinking
51 about copying or distributing this Package.
52 "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
53 basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people
54 involved, and so on. (You will not be required to justify it
55 to the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community
56 at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
57 "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
58 itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the
59 item. It also means that recipients of the item may
60 redistribute it under the same conditions they received it.
61
621. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of
63the Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided
64that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and
65associated disclaimers.
66
672. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other
68modifications derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright
69Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still be considered
70the Standard Version.
71
723. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
73provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file
74stating how and when you changed that file, and provided that you
75do at least the following:
76
77 rename any non-standard executables and testcases so the
78 names do not conflict with standard executables and
79 testcases, which must also be provided, and provide a
80 separate manual page for each non-standard executable and
81 testcase that clearly documents how it differs from the
82 Standard Version.
83
844. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code
85or executable form, provided that you do at least the following:
86
87 accompany any non-standard executables and testcases with
88 their corresponding Standard Version executables and
89 testcases, giving the non-standard executables and
90 testcases non-standard names, and clearly documenting the
91 differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together with
92 instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
93
945. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of
95this Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this
96Package. You may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However,
97you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
98commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial)
99software distribution provided that you do not advertise this
100Package as a product of your own.
101
1026. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced
103as output from the programs of this Package do not automatically
104fall under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever
105generated them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated
106with this Package.
107
1087.Subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package shall
109not be considered part of this Package.
110
1118. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
112promote products derived from this software without specific prior
113written permission.
114
1159. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
116IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
117WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
118
119The End
