Bug#604186: ITP: ministat -- basic statistics for a set of samples

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>

* Package name    : ministat
  Version         : 2007-12-20
  Upstream Author : Poul-Henning Kamp <phk@FreeBSD.ORG>
* URL             : http://www.freebsd.org/
* License         : BSD / Beer-Ware License
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : A small tool to do the statistics legwork on benchmarks etc.

This utility comes from the FreeBSD distribution and has not been
released as a separate package, though there is a port to MacOS X.

The manual page has a 2-clause BSD licence; the C code says:

 * "THE BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42):
 * <phk@FreeBSD.ORG> wrote this file.  As long as you retain this notice you
 * can do whatever you want with this stuff. If we meet some day, and you think
 * this stuff is worth it, you can buy me a beer in return.   Poul-Henning Kamp

I interpret this as equivalent to 2-clause BSD, since there is no
*obligation* of payment.
