RE: CheckSpaceFree license

Hi Robert,

I have no issues with you or anybody else using that "code". It comes with
no warranties and makes use of a plugin written by somebody else - I assume
you would need their "permission" too.

Since I have not been involved in the NSIS community for quite some time I
do not feel comfortable with granting this permission or modifying the NSIS
wiki myself and so am including the (AFAIK) NSIS lead developer and project
owner Kichik in the To: of this email.

Kichik, good to talk to you mate, see below...
