I'm working on adding LICENSE information to my ports, and have a few
questions. A lot of my ports are ISC products, and they have the
I also have dns/fpdns which has this:
http://people.freebsd.org/~dougb/LICENSE.txt which looks like it could
be BSD, but I'm not sure. I also have several others in this category.
net-mgmt/p5-Net-IP has http://people.freebsd.org/~dougb/COPYING.txt
which could fall into the "perl" category, except there isn't one. :)
Then there is security/libassuan which seems to be dual licensed under
GPLv3 and LGPLv2, did we ever decide how to handle that?
textproc/htdig is so old that it is using LGPL 2, but there is only an
LGPL21 in bsd.licenses.db.mk
x11/xscreensaver doesn't have an explicit copyright/license file, but it
has this in the individual files:
* xscreensaver, Copyright (c) 1991-2010 Jamie Zawinski <jwz at jwz.org>

Seems like BSD to me?
... and that's just a little bit of history repeating.
