BooleanOperations is not a derivative work of pyclipper. It is not a derivative
of the clipper library as well and pyclipper itself is not a derivative work of
the clipper library.

- pyclipper is a set of python bindings for the clipper library (this is not a
derivative, it just uses the library).

- BooleanOperations is a python package that uses (imports) pyclipper, which
does not mean it is a derivative as well.

Derivative works would be modifications on top of the software in question.

Just to be sure, I am rasing Fedora legal flag.
