Hi C. Hutchinson,
some questions / remarks.
Using the command `diff -nruw' I see no no code addition / improvement
However, you have changed the original license and and added your name
and BSDforge as additional Copyright holder.
- * Copyright 2003 Sönke Tesch. All rights reserved.
- * Version 20031023
+ * Copyright 2003 SÃ¶nke Tesch. All rights reserved.
+ * Copyright 2014 C Hutchinson, All rights reserved.
Some reasons why I additional dislike the License change:
+ * 4. Neither the name of BSDforge, nor the names of its contributors
+ * may be used to endorse or promote products derived from this
+ * software without specific prior written permission.
- * THIS SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED ``AS IS'' AND ANY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED
+ * THIS SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED BY THE PERLWATCH ORGANIZATION ''AS IS'' AND
My personal opinion:
I see no code improvements that allows such Lic. changes (cleanup whites paces
and using iconv to convert a file from ISO-8859 to UTF-8 was never a reason to
add an individual to the Copyright or allow to change the License terms.
I have contacted the original src. Author from mod_log_mysql, so please
be patient and stay tuned until I have feedback from Sönke.
