7 This documents purpose is to state the conditions under which these
8 Packages (See definition below) viz: "Crack", the Unix Password Cracker,
9 and "CrackLib", the Unix Password Checking library, which are held in
10 copyright by Alec David Edward Muffett, may be copied, such that the
11 copyright holder maintains some semblance of artistic control over the
12 development of the packages, while giving the users of the package the
13 right to use and distribute the Package in a more-or-less customary
14 fashion, plus the right to make reasonable modifications.
15
16 So there.

20 Definitions:
21
22
23 A "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
24 Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created
25 through textual modification, or segments thereof.
26
27 "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been modified,
28 or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the Copyright
29 Holder.
30
31 "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights
32 for the package.
33
34 "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this
35 Package.
36
37 "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis of
38 media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so on.
39 (You will not be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but
40 only to the computing community at large as a market that must bear the
41 fee.)
42
43 "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item itself,
44 though there may be fees involved in handling the item. It also means
45 that recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same
46 conditions they received it.
47
48
49 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
50 Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
51 duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated
52 disclaimers.
53
54 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
55 derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A Package
56 modified in such a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
57
58 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
59 provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating
60 how and when AND WHY you changed that file, and provided that you do at
61 least ONE of the following:
62
63 a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
64 Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an
65 equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive site
66 such as uunet.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include
67 your modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
68
69 b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
70
71 c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict with
72 standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide separate
73 documentation for each non-standard executable that clearly documents
74 how it differs from the Standard Version.
75
76 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
77
78 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
79 executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
80
81 a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
82 together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
83 to get the Standard Version.
84
85 b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of the
86 Package with your modifications.
87
88 c) accompany any non-standard executables with their corresponding
89 Standard Version executables, giving the non-standard executables
90 non-standard names, and clearly documenting the differences in manual
91 pages (or equivalent), together with instructions on where to get the
92 Standard Version.
93
94 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
95
96 5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
97 Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package.
98 YOU MAY NOT CHARGE A FEE FOR THIS PACKAGE ITSELF. However, you may
99 distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly commercial)
100 programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial) software distribution
101 provided that YOU DO NOT ADVERTISE this package as a product of your
102 own.
103
104 6. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
105 promote products derived from this software without specific prior
106 written permission.
107
108 7. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
109 WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
110 MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
