Date: Fri, 19 Apr 2013 04:47:21 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: john-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: licensing Hi, I've attached two files: john-1.7.9-jumbo-7-licensing-stats.txt john-1.7.9-jumbo-7-licensing.txt The stats file gives some grep commands to run on the lengthy licensing file. It also gives these statistics: 474 files were reviewed for their licensing terms. 324 may be reusable in non-GPL'ed software (either are copyrighted by Solar, so can be relicensed by Solar, or are released to the general public under sufficiently relaxed terms). This includes 5 files under MPL 1.1 and 1 under LGPL 2.1 - these 6 are only reusable if conditions of the respective licenses are met. magnum, I think these two text files are reasonable to be committed into the tree, under doc/ - what do you think? Since they pertain specifically to 1.7.9-jumbo-7, I think the filenames referring to this version should be kept. We may then create and maintain similar files pertaining to the current version(s), including the development tree, although it is a moving target. Needing to add each new source file to the licensing file may improve our licensing discipline, and maybe help avoid unnecessarily GPL'ing of new source files (although this will need to be explained somewhere, including why and how). I will also post a separate message with the not-yet-posted portion of the licensing file (for src/), for easy quoting of individual lines in replies (I hope the contributors will help clarify some issues).
