============================================================================
Preamble
========
This software repository originally was meant for personal use (by Thomas
Forbriger) only. In 2010 it was made available to others in order to share the
code, bug fixes, and extensions. As a consequence parts of this repository are
not yet tailored to be used by a team of developers. This will change in the
future. Currently you will find it in a transitional state.
Copyright notice
================
By committing to this repository your code contributions pretty sure will mix
with my code in a way that code lines and files from you and code lines and
files from me (Thomas Forbriger) will become intrinsically tied. I cannot
foresee under which licence conditions or in which context I will use my code
in the future, nor will I be able to remove your contributions again without
with existing code in a way that your lines of code and your files and
existing code will become intrinsically tied. Large parts of the code are
licensed under the GPL (GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE). This will also be the
case for your contributions to these parts. It cannot be foreseen under which
license conditions or in which context other parts of the code will be used in
the future, nor will it be possible to remove your contributions again without
reverting to older revisions of the repository and thus loosing functionality.
For this reason by submitting code to this respository you agree that I may
use this code in the future as if it would be my own. If you do not like this,
then choose a different option (other repository) to store your code.
Parts of my code contain explicit licence terms. You may checkout and use this
part of the code according to the licence (mostly GPL). If you like to use
parts of the code that do not contain an explicit licence in a context apart
from personal use, you must first get into contact with me to straighten any
copyright issues and receive my consent.
The subdirectory "3rd" contains thrid party contributions of which I do not
hold the copyright. They are integrated in the respository for ease of use.
Further there are other locations (for historical reasons) where the
repository contains code for which I am not the copyright holder. By checking
out from the repository you agree that you will use this part of the code only
for your personal use and in agreement with the individual licence conditions
of the files.
For this reason by submitting code to this respository you agree that it may
be used freely together with the existing code and that you pass your economic
rights to the owner of the repository. If you feel uncomfortable with this,
put your code explicitely under the GPL or choose a different option (other
repository) to store your code.
If you like to use parts of the code that do not contain an explicit license
in a context apart from personal (non-commercial) use, you shall first get
into contact with Thomas Forbriger to straighten any copyright issues and
receive his consent.
