We also added a few icons of our own which thus carry the same license
as Padre itself (given that they're part of it...). Since I'm probably
the only one who fired up gimp so far, maybe this is the right time to
let me know whether that's enough information on the license of those
extra, self-made icons? Update: Just saw your next mail. I'll fix this.

I am very, very sure that you can simply change this to the "Copyright
Gabor Szabo, yada yada" notice that adorns all other files. AFAIR, all
contributors were asked whether they'd agree to hand over copyright to

They say author is me because I wrote them. That's a useful information
in other contexts than copyright. ("who wrote that crap, damnit!?") I
thought with the copyright notice pointing to Gabor, I'd make things
simpler, not troublesome. So this is intentional. Let me know if it's
also counter-productive. :)

You bet. We still don't have all of CPAN. Working on it. But for a small
taste: The "portable padre" for win32 that includes a working Strawberry
Perl, a Parrot, a Rakudo Perl(6), a wxWidgets and Padre weighs in at

Those in the padre subdirectory (if that's already there in 0.25, things
move so fast!) are our original work.

All the Padre developers are used to other editors. Some of switched
entirely, but most of us are still in transition. I, for example, try to
edit Padre with Padre, but use vim for work (C++). So the reflexes
sometimes make me fire up trusty old vim instead. A few people seem to
work on Windows. I don't think it's that surprising that there's some
CR/LF confusion going on.

Thanks! Feel free to join us on irc.perl.org's #padre channel or the
Padre development mailing list. But you're already doing us a huge
favour by working so hard on packaging for debian. It's much appreciated!
