The Artistic License


The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which
a Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains
some semblance of artistic control over the development of the
package, while giving the users of the package the right to use
and distribute the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion,
plus the right to make reasonable modifications.


  -  "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by
     the Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of
     files created through textual modification.

  -  "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not
     been modified, or has been modified in accordance with the
     wishes of the Copyright Holder.

  -  "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
     copyrights for the package.

  -  "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or
     distributing this Package.

  -  "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
     basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people
     involved, and so on. (You will not be required to justify it
     to the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community
     at large as a market that must bear the fee.)

  -  "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
     itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the
     item. It also means that recipients of the item may
     redistribute it under the same conditions they received it.


1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form
of the Standard Version of this Package without restriction,
provided that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices
and associated disclaimers.

2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other
modifications derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright
Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still be considered
the Standard Version.

3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file
stating how and when you changed that file, and provided that you
do at least ONE of the following:

     a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or
     otherwise make them Freely Available, such as by posting
     said modifications to Usenet or an equivalent medium, or
     placing the modifications on a major archive site such
     as ftp.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to
     include your modifications in the Standard Version of
     the Package.

     b) use the modified Package only within your corporation
     or organization.

     c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do
     not conflict with standard executables, which must also
     be provided, and provide a separate manual page for each
     non-standard executable that clearly documents how it
     differs from the Standard Version.

     d) make other distribution arrangements with the
     Copyright Holder.

4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code
or executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the

     a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and
     library files, together with instructions (in the manual
     page or equivalent) on where to get the Standard

     b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable
     source of the Package with your modifications.

     c) accompany any non-standard executables with their
     corresponding Standard Version executables, giving the
     non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
     documenting the differences in manual pages (or
     equivalent), together with instructions on where to get
     the Standard Version.

     d) make other distribution arrangements with the
     Copyright Holder.

5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of
this Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of
this Package. You may not charge a fee for this Package itself.
However, you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other
(possibly commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly
commercial) software distribution provided that you do not
advertise this Package as a product of your own.

6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced
as output from the programs of this Package do not automatically
fall under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever
generated them, and may be sold commercially, and may be
aggregated with this Package.

7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this
Package shall not be considered part of this Package.

8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
promote products derived from this software without specific prior
written permission.
