KDrill - YAL

Here's the final licence for KDrill 5.8. I hesitate a bit for
putting in non-free or main. For sure, we can distribute it because
of a) [I don't make other modifications myself]. But I'm not sure
about c) which intend to allow distribution of packages like us
(original source+patches) but not explicitely allow modified binaries.
IMHO, this make it non-free, isn't?

extract from LICENSE:
Sigh. the legal stuff just gets messier and messier.
I, Philip Brown, am now writing my own license again. 

"The Program" in this document refers to kdrill, (c) 1991-1999

"{A/the} distribution" refers to the full contents of a tar file, or
other archive, used by me to distribute the program from my ftp or web site.

The overall purpose of this document is to declare:

"This is MY program. I care about what happens to it. Don't mess me around
 or I'll sue your butt"

Now on to the nice stuff.

You, or anyone else, is free to use the program whenever, and however they
like for themselves, for no charge.

I make no warantee, implied or otherwise, as to the safety, bugfreeness, or
anything else, of this program [etc, etc].
That being said, if you TELL ME about a bug, I'll try to fix it :-)


You may redistribute the program in any of the ways below, without charge:

  a) A binary-only compilation of an unmodified distribution from
       Adjustments to the Imakefile, or X resource file
       are not considered modifications.
       You must provide a noticable message that the full source code is
       on ftp.bolthole.com, and that I am the original author.
  b) Full source code [binaries optional]
       You may choose to provide source modifications, and binaries based
       on those modifications. However, the original program distribution must
       be present, in its entirety, unaltered, along with your files.
  c) A set of patches to an unmodified distribution.
       You do not have to provide the distribution, just a pointer
       to ftp.bolthole.com, and a notice that I am the original author.
