     3 				Preamble
       
     4 
       
     5 The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
       
     6 Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
       
     7 semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
       
     8 while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
       
     9 the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
       
    10 reasonable modifications.
       
    11 
       
    12 Definitions:
       
    13 
       
    14 	"Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
       
    15 	Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
       
    16 	created through textual modification.
       
    17 
       
    18 	"Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
       
    19 	modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
       
    20 	of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
       
    21 
       
    22 	"Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
       
    23 	copyrights for the package.
       
    24 
       
    25 	"You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
       
    26 	this Package.
       
    27 
       
    28 	"Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
       
    29 	basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved,
       
    30 	and so on.  (You will not be required to justify it to the
       
    31 	Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community at large
       
    32 	as a market that must bear the fee.)
       
    33 
       
    34 	"Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
       
    35 	itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the item.
       
    36 	It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute it
       
    37 	under the same conditions they received it.
       
    38 
       
    39 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
       
    40 Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
       
    41 duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
       
    42 
       
    43 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
       
    44 derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder.  A Package
       
    45 modified in such a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
       
    46 
       
    47 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided
       
    48 that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and
       
    49 when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
       
    50 following:
       
    51 
       
    52     a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
       
    53     Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or
       
    54     an equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive
       
    55     site such as uunet.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include
       
    56     your modifications in the Standard Version 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 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
       
    68 executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
       
    69 
       
    70     a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
       
    71     together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
       
    72     to get the Standard Version.
       
    73 
       
    74     b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
       
    75     the Package with your modifications.
       
    76 
       
    77     c) give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
       
    78     document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together
       
    79     with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
       
    80 
       
    81     d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
       
    82 
       
    83 5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
       
    84 Package.  You may charge any fee you choose for support of this
       
    85 Package.  You may not charge a fee for this Package itself.  However,
       
    86 you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
       
    87 commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial) software
       
    88 distribution provided that you do not advertise this Package as a
       
    89 product of your own.  You may embed this Package's interpreter within
       
    90 an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be construed as a mere
       
    91 form of aggregation, provided that the complete Standard Version of the
       
    92 interpreter is so embedded.
       
    93 
       
    94 6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
       
    95 output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
       
    96 under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever generated
       
    97 them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
       
    98 Package.  If such scripts or library files are aggregated with this
       
    99 Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of producing a
       
   100 binary executable image, then distribution of such an image shall
       
   101 neither be construed as a distribution of this Package nor shall it
       
   102 fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do
       
   103 not represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
       
   104 Package.
       
   105 
       
   106 7. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
       
   107 languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
       
   108 emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
       
   109 Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
       
   110 equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
       
   111 not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
       
   112 regression tests for the language.
       
   113 
       
   114 8. Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is always
       
   115 permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded; that is,
       
   116 when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's interfaces visible
       
   117 to the end user of the commercial distribution.  Such use shall not be
       
   118 construed as a distribution of this Package.
       
   119 
       
   120 9. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
       
   121 products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
       
   122 
       
   123 10. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
       
   124 IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
       
   125 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

   127 				The End
