proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.

+ (Copyright 1989 M. Stephenson)
+ (Based on the BISON general public license,
+ copyright 1988 Richard M. Stallman)
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
+ license, but changing it is not allowed. You can also use this wording to
+ make the terms for other programs.
+ The license agreements of most software companies keep you at the mercy of
+those companies. By contrast, our general public license is intended to give
+everyone the right to share NetHack. To make sure that you get the rights we
+want you to have, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you
+these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. Hence this license
+ Specifically, we want to make sure that you have the right to give away
+copies of NetHack, that you receive source code or else can get it if you
+want it, that you can change NetHack or use pieces of it in new free
+programs, and that you know you can do these things.
+ To make sure that everyone has such rights, we have to forbid you to
+deprive anyone else of these rights. For example, if you distribute copies
+of NetHack, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You
+must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you
+must tell them their rights.
+ Also, for our own protection, we must make certain that everyone finds out
+that there is no warranty for NetHack. If NetHack is modified by someone
+else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is
+not what we distributed.
+ Therefore we (Mike Stephenson and other holders of NetHack copyrights) make
+the following terms which say what you must do to be allowed to distribute or
+change NetHack.
+ 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of NetHack source code as
+you receive it, in any medium, provided that you keep intact the notices on
+all files that refer to copyrights, to this License Agreement, and to the
+absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the NetHack
+program a copy of this License Agreement along with the program.
+ 2. You may modify your copy or copies of NetHack or any portion of it, and
+copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Paragraph 1 above
+(including distributing this License Agreement), provided that you also do the
+ a) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you
+ changed the files and the date of any change; and
+ b) cause the whole of any work that you distribute or publish, that in
+ whole or in part contains or is a derivative of NetHack or any part
+ thereof, to be licensed at no charge to all third parties on terms
+ identical to those contained in this License Agreement (except that you
+ may choose to grant more extensive warranty protection to some or all
+ third parties, at your option)
+ c) You may charge a distribution fee for the physical act of
+ transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection
+ in exchange for a fee.
+ 3. You may copy and distribute NetHack (or a portion or derivative of it,
+under Paragraph 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
+Paragraphs 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
+ a) accompany it with the complete machine-readable source code, which
+ must be distributed under the terms of Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
+ b) accompany it with full information as to how to obtain the complete
+ machine-readable source code from an appropriate archive site. (This
+ alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution.)
+For these purposes, complete source code means either the full source
+distribution as originally released over Usenet or updated copies of the
+files in this distribution used to create the object code or executable.
+ 4. You may not copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer NetHack except as
+expressly provided under this License Agreement. Any attempt otherwise to
+copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer NetHack is void and your rights to
+use the program under this License agreement shall be automatically
+terminated. However, parties who have received computer software programs
+from you with this License Agreement will not have their licenses terminated
+so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
+Stated plainly: You are permitted to modify NetHack, or otherwise use parts
+of NetHack, provided that you comply with the conditions specified above;
+in particular, your modified NetHack or program containing parts of NetHack
+must remain freely available as provided in this License Agreement. In
+other words, go ahead and share NetHack, but don't try to stop anyone else
+from sharing it farther.
