@ -11,6 +11,76 @@ Jonas, or the current maintainer of the day to do the right thing (much
like it is in the Linux kernel). But this needs to be yet worked out
and agreed upon.
Other licences apply to some files in the source tree. The following
files and their derivatives are not installed by "make install" and
typically don't appear in binary packages of ELinks, so we do not
include their complete licence notices in COPYING:
* acinclude.m4: Concatenated from config/m4/*.m4, which see.
* aclocal.m4, config/install-sh: Permissive licences.
* config/config.guess, config/config.sub: GPLv2 or later, plus special
exception.
* config/m4/gettext.m4, config/m4/lcmessage.m4, config/m4/progtest.m4:
"can be copied and used freely without restrictions".
* config/missing: GPLv2 or later.
* config/mkinstalldirs: Public domain.
* configure: "unlimited permission to copy, distribute and modify"
from FSF, but this is also derived from configure.in, which is
GPLv2.
* contrib/debian/rules: "GNU copyright 1997 to 1999 by Joey Hess",
whatever that means.
* doc/tools/asciidoc/: GPLv2 or later.
* doc/tools/help2xml, po/perl/msgaccel-check,
po/perl/msgaccel-prepare: ISC licence.
* po/perl/Locale/PO.pm: "same terms as Perl itself", i.e. GPLv1 or
later or Artistic License.
* test/bigtextarea.html: Changing the text of GPLv2 is not allowed,
but you could replace that with some other text.
* test/color.html: possibly derived from rgb.txt of X11?
* test/optgroup.html: GNU free documentation licence; see
test/GFDL-1.2.
* test/GFDL-1.2: Changing the text of GFDLv1.2 is not allowed.
The following files or their derivatives are installed by "make
install" or might otherwise be useful to include in binary packages,
so their full licence terms should be included here in COPYING:
* contrib/conv/mailcap.pl: GPLv2 or later.
* contrib/LinksOS2Icon.zip: Part public domain.
* contrib/links_wps.zip: Part GPLv2 or later.
* COPYING: Changing the text of GPLv2 is not allowed.
* doc/manual.txt: "Hold blameless the authors. Any lawful use is
allowed." which presumably applies to the entire ELinks manual,
except the list of features is derived from features.conf, which
is GPLv2.
* src/osdep/getifaddrs.c, src/osdep/getifaddrs.h: See "KTH 3-clause
BSD-style licences" below.
* src/util/md5.c, Unicode/entities.txt: Public domain.
* src/util/sha1.c, src/util/sha1.h: Mozilla Public License Version 1.1
(not later), or GNU General Public License Version 2 or later.
ELinks uses these under GPL and does not include the text of the MPL.
