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.

    "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
38
39
40
41
    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.

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 uunet.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
84
85
following:

86
87
88
    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 Version.
89

90
91
    b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source
    of the Package with your modifications.
92

    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.

118
119
120
121
122
123
124
125
order to emulate subroutines and variables defined by this Package
shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the equivalent
of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do not change
the behavior of the Package in any way that would cause it to fail
the regression tests for the Package.

8. Software supplied by you and linked with this Package in order
to use subroutines and variables defined by this Package shall not
be considered part of this Package and do not automatically fall
126
under the copyright of this Package.  Executables produced
127
by linking your software with this Package may be used and
128
129
130
redistributed without restriction and may be sold commercially
so long as the primary function of your software is different
than the package itself.
