The text says "based on" (if I recall correctly) which generally is no escape from earlier ownership, I believe.

"Based on" as in the sense that they looked at the Max/MSP help patches while making the cyclone help patches. The code or files were not copied, but rather the ideas were imitated. I was involved in the writing of that documentation.

Sounds fine, then.

Where did you see that?

I found _no_ licensing related to that copyright statement.

NB! Beware also of the stripped authors I mentioned in my previous post (which you quoted but did not comment on, Felipe - I genereally recommend to quote only relevant email parts, i.e. parts you comment on).

The license is the Tcl/Tk License, which is also was Pd used to use.
the pddpserver.tcl file is also covered by the Tcl/Tk License.


Please note how I renamed the license shortname to be a single word similar to all(!) examples in DEP5 (even if not explicitly mandated).

Since the license is not on the explicit list, I chose to use a leading "other-" to ensure that when maybe later it is introduced, we do verify explicitly that we indeed use same license as officially added (i.e. I deliberately do not follow same rationale as for for new sections - which (in newer discussions than reflected in rev. 135) discourages leading "X-" in those cases).
