+ Floodgap Free Software License
+
+ The author of your software has chosen to distribute it under the
+ Floodgap Free Software License. Although this software is without cost,
+ it is not released under Copyleft or GPL, and there are differences
+ which you should read. Your use of this software package constitutes
+ your binding acceptance without restriction.
+
+ This software is without cost
+
+ The Floodgap Free Software License (FFSL) has one overriding mandate:
+ that software using it, or derivative works based on software that uses
+ it, must be free. By free we mean simply "free as in beer" -- you may
+ put your work into open or closed source packages as you see fit,
+ whether or not you choose to release your changes or updates publicly,
+ but you must not ask any fee for it. (There are certain exceptions for
+ for-profit use which we will discuss below.)
+
+ Definitions and terms
+
+ Author
+ The declared copyright owner of this software package.
+
+ Binary
+ A pre-compiled or pre-interpreted bytecode or machine language
+ representation of a software package not designed for further
+ modification and tied to a particular platform or architecture.
+
+ Derivative work
+ Any distribution (q.v.) that contains any modification to or
+ deviation from the official reference distribution (q.v.); or
+ any software package significantly based on or integrally
+ including the source code for its features, including but not
+ limited to supersets; subsets of a significant proportion;
+ in-place patched changes to source or binary files; linking in
+ as a library; binary-only distributions if the original package
+ included source (even if the source was not modified prior to
+ compilation); or translations to another programming language,
+ architecture or operating system environment. Derivative works
+ of packages released under this license are also considered
+ subject to this license.
+
+ However, a software package that requires this package but does
+ not include it or is not based upon it, even if it will not
+ operate without it, is not considered a derivative work. For
+ example, interpreted programs requiring an interpreter issued
+ under this license, assuming they are not distributed with any
+ portion of the interpreter, are not derivative works.
+
+ Distribution
+ A packaged release of this software, either the author's
+ original work (the "reference distribution") or a derivative
+ work based upon it.
+
+ Reference distribution
+ A packaged release of this software explicitly designated as the
+ official release, written by or on behalf of the Author with his
+ or her explicit designation as official. Only exact copies of
+ the reference distribution may be called reference
+ distributions; all other forms are derivative works.
+
+ Source code
+ The human-readable programming instructions of the package which
+ might be easily read as text and subsequently edited, but
+ requiring compilation or interpretation into binary before being
+ directly useable.
+
+ What you are permitted to do under this license
+
+ Pursuant to the remainder of the terms below,
+ * You may freely use, copy, and disseminate this software package for
+ any non-commercial purpose as well as the commercial purposes
+ permitted below.
+ * You may freely modify this package, including source code if
+ available. Your modifications need not be released, although you
+ are encouraged to do so.
+ * You may release your derivative works based upon this software in
+ purely binary (non-source) form if you choose. You are not
+ obligated to release any portion of your source code openly,
+ although you are encouraged to do so.
+ * If this package is a tool used for generation, compilation or
+ maintenance of works, including but not limited to readable
+ documents, software packages or images (for example, compilers,
+ interpreters, translators, linkers, editors, assemblers or
+ typesetters), you may freely use it for that purpose, commercial or
+ otherwise, as the works made by this package are not considered
+ subject to this license unless specified otherwise within and may
+ be distributed under any desired license and/or offered for sale or
+ rental. Any run-time library or run-time code section linked into
+ the output by a compiler or similar code-generating tool governed
+ by this license is considered to be an integral part of the output,
+ and its presence does not subject the generated work to this
+ license either. (This is, of course, assuming you are not using
+ said tools to generate a derivative work based on this package in
+ violation of the other license terms.)
+ However, if you are linking or including a separately distributed
+ library that is under this license, no matter what tool you are
+ using to do the linking or inclusion, you are then considered to be
+ making a derivative work based on that library and your work does
+ fall under this license. To avoid this, do not include the library
+ with your work (even though it needs the library to function) and
+ instead offer the library separately without cost.
+ * In addition to non-commercial use and the uses permitted above, you
+ may use this software package in any for-profit endeavour as long
+ as it does not involve the specific sale or rental of this package.
+ Some specific but by no means exhaustive examples are listed below.
+ Note that some of these situations may require additional action be
+ taken to ensure compliance.
+ + If this package or a derivative work allows you to serve data
+ or make data available to others (for example, web servers,
+ mail servers, gopher servers, etc.), you may use it to serve
+ any commercial content or in any commercial setting whether
+ you choose to charge a fee or not, as you are considered to be
+ earning income from the content you serve and/or the services
+ facilitated by your business and not from the sale of this
+ package itself. (This is, of course, assuming that you are not
+ charging a fee for sale or rental of this package or a
+ derivative work based on this package in violation of the
+ other license terms.) Similarly, any data you may acquire from
+ the use of this package is yours, and not governed by this
+ license in any way even if for-profit.
+ + If you are selling a product that includes this package or a
+ derivative work either as part of your product's requirements
+ for function or as a bundled extra, such as an operating
+ system distribution, you may charge a fee for your product as
+ long as you also make this package or said derivative work
+ available for free separately (such as by download or link
+ back to this package's site), as you are considered to be
+ requesting a fee for your own product and the package is
+ merely included as a convenience to your users.
+ + If you offer installation of this package or a derivative work
+ as a service, you may charge a fee for the act of installation
+ as long as you also make this package or said derivative work
+ available for free (such as by download or link back to this
+ package's site), as you are considered to be requesting a fee
+ for the act of installation and not for the software you are
+ installing.
+ + The Author may also grant, in writing, other specified
+ exemptions for your particular commercial purpose that do not
+ contravene the spirit of this license or any license terms
+ this package additionally carries.
+ * In your derivative works based on this package, you may choose to
+ offer warranty support or guarantees of performance. This does not
+ in any way make the original Author legally, financially or in any
+ other respect liable for claims issued under your warranty or
+ guarantee, and you are solely responsible for the fulfillment of
+ your terms even if the Author of the work you have based your work
+ upon offers his or her own.
+ * In your derivative works based on this package, you may further
+ restrict the acceptable uses of your package or situations in which
+ it may be employed as long as you clearly state that your terms
+ apply only to your derivative work and not to the original
+ reference distribution. However, you may not countermand or ignore,
+ directly or otherwise, any restriction already made in the
+ reference distribution's license, including in this document
+ itself, in similar fashion to other licenses allowing compatible
+ licenses to co-govern a particular package's use.
+
+ What you must not do under this license
+
+ Remember that these limits apply only to redistribution of a reference
+ distribution, or to a true derivative work. If your project does not
+ include this package or code based upon it, even if it requires this
+ package to function, it is not considered subject to this license or
+ these restrictions.
+ * You must not charge a fee for purchase or rental of this package or
+ any derivative work based on this package. It is still possible to
+ use this package in a commercial environment, however -- see What
+ you are permitted to do under this license.
+ * You must not countermand or ignore, directly or otherwise, the
+ restrictions already extant in this package's license in your
+ derivative work based on it. As a corollary, you must not place
+ your derivative work under a secondary license or description of
+ terms that conflicts with it (for example, this license is not
+ compatible with the GNU Public License).
+ * You must not label any modified distribution of this package as a
+ reference or otherwise official distribution without the permission
+ of the original Author or Authors. You must clearly specify that
+ your modified work is a derivative work, including binary-only
+ releases if the original included source code and you do not even
+ if you did not modify the source prior to compilation.
+
+ What you must do under this license
+
+ * You must agree to all terms specified (agreement to which is
+ unconditionally signified by your usage, modification or
+ repurposing of this package), or to remove the package from your
+ computer and not use it further.
+ * In the absence of any specific offer for redress or assistance
+ under warranty or guarantee of performance that the Author of this
+ package might make, you must agree to accept any and all liability
+ that may come from the use of this package, proper or improper,
+ real or imagined, and certify without condition that you use this
+ product at your own risk with no guarantee of function,
+ merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. If such offer
+ of redress or assistance is extended, it is fulfillable only by the
+ Author who extended the offer, which might not necessarily be this
+ Author, nor might it be the Authors of any packages it might be
+ based upon.
+ * If you choose to publicly redistribute this package or create a
+ derivative work based on this package, you must make it available
+ without any purchase or rental fee of any kind.
+ * If you choose to create a derivative work based on this package,
+ your derivative work must be copyrighted, and must be governed
+ under (at a minimum) the original package's license, which will
+ necessarily include all terms noted here. As such, if you choose to
+ distribute your derivative work, you must include a human-readable
+ license in your distribution containing all restrictions of use,
+ necessarily including this license, and any additional restrictions
+ the Author has mandated that do not contravene this license which
+ you and users of your derivative work must also honour.
+ * If you choose to create and distribute a derivative work based on
+ this package, your derivative work must clearly make reference to
+ this package, any other packages your work or the original work
+ might be based on, and all applicable copyrights, either in your
+ documentation, your work's standard human-readable output, or both.
+ A suggested method might be
+
+ Contains or is based on the Foo software package.
