From: Jaromír Mikeš <mira.mi...@gmail.com>Hi Jeffrey, I am taking over gwc package in debian and having some license concerns: 1) chbevl.c file has this statement Cephes Math Library Release 2.0: April, 1987 Copyright 1985, 1987 by Stephen L. Moshier Direct inquiries to 30 Frost Street, Cambridge, MA 02140 Interpreting of such text can be as "I own this, please contact me in any case!". You probably did not intend such interpretation. Can you please add explicit licensing statement to this file. best regards mira2011/3/6 jeff welty <wel...@yahoo.com>:Hi Mira, Thanks for catching that. There is a README attached to the original tar archive that clearly indicates the source code may be used freely, this was 1990, long before the open source copyrights started to be written and understood. Here is the README: --- Some software in this archive may be from the book _Methods and Programs for Mathematical Functions_ (Prentice-Hall, 1989) or from the Cephes Mathematical Library, a commercial product. In either event, it is copyrighted by the author. What you see here may be used freely but it comes with no support or guarantee. The two known misprints in the book are repaired here in the source listings for the gamma function and the incomplete beta integral. Stephen L. Moshier mosh...@world.std.com --- If I place the text of this readme in the source files chbelv.c, i0.c and i1.c, will that meet your needs? Best regards, JefHi, above is response from upstream, I was asking to solve issue in chbevl.c file. Would be suggested solution good enough for us? Can this note in README file solve issue in meschach library?
Not in README but in copyright file. Otherwise yes, that seems fine to me.
