That copyright notice on the website should apply to everything that is not under some other license. Different parts of the system is under different licenses and copyrights depending on who wrote it. The mkdir.c *was* under the 4 clause license. However all material that was part of the original BSDs and thus was copyrighted by "The Regents of the University of California" has had its license changed such that clause 3 (the advertising clause) no longer apply. This would seem to include mkdir.c Most of the files in the source tree have not had their copyright notices updated to reflect this. See http://www.freebsd.org/copyright/license.html for details on this license. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
