I've made a port - games/steelstorm, however (pointyhat to me) I've
later discovered that it has some restrictive clauses - namely, license
revocation and compliance to US export laws. For now, the port asks user
to confirm a license, however I'm not sure if automatic
downloading/mirroring a distfile is ok. Here's a full license text:


software authors kindly agreed to remove revocation term (which worried
be the most), however other terms are in question. Could someone review
that license and say whether that's ok in ports, whether distfile
mirroring is OK and whether we should modify it to make user download
file for himself (like with java)?
