Neil Conway asked me if we need a copyright notice to cover the code I

is a patch to include it.


Unless I'm mistaken, all of the FreeBSD code is under the 3 clause
license.

However, the easiest way to find out is to look at the header of the
files that you borrowed code from.

We don't want the 4 clause unless necessary.


I C&P'd this directly from the file in question:


http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/bin/mkdir/mkdir.c?rev=1.27&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup


Maybe the FreeBSD guys haven't updated all their notices correctly? This notice has been unchanged in this file since 1994.


http://www.freebsd.org/copyright/license.html shows they are indeed out of date. Here's a patch with the advertising clause deleted from the notice.

cheers
