But, I'd think Washington University better take an approach like
"release early, release often". That might help. Off topic though.
Two things, alpine is probably being released under a different
semi-proprietary license that all UW software gets released under,
including pine, so it's definitely not BSD licensed or (L)GPL
licensed by any means.
At the moment it is released under a very restrictive license to
alpha testers, which I why I can't simply post a link to a copy of
it. But when it is officially released it will be released under the
Apache 2.0 license, which will be an improvement over the existing
Note also that UW's imap libraries are released under a very non-
restrictive license. So really it's just Pine that's been under
their peculiar license.
