Add GPL-2-with-MySQL-FLOSS-exception for dev-java/jdbc-mysql

1 betelgeuse 1.1 MySQL FLOSS License Exception
2    
3     The MySQL AB Exception for Free/Libre and Open Source Software-only
4     Applications Using MySQL Client Libraries (the "FLOSS Exception").
5    
6    
7     Exception Intent
8     We want specified Free/Libre and Open Source Software ("FLOSS") applications
9     to be able to use specified GPL-licensed MySQL client libraries (the
10     "Program") despite the fact that not all FLOSS licenses are compatible with
11     version 2 of the GNU General Public License (the "GPL").
12    
13    
14     Legal Terms and Conditions
15     As a special exception to the terms and conditions of version 2.0 of the
16     GPL:
17    
18     0. You are free to distribute a Derivative Work that is formed entirely from
19     the Program and one or more works (each, a "FLOSS Work") licensed under
20     one or more of the licenses listed below in section 1, as long as:
21    
22     a. You obey the GPL in all respects for the Program and the Derivative
23     Work, except for identifiable sections of the Derivative Work which
24     are not derived from the Program, and which can reasonably be
25     considered independent and separate works in themselves,
26    
27     b. all identifiable sections of the Derivative Work which are not
28     derived from the Program, and which can reasonably be considered
29     independent and separate works in themselves,
30    
31     (i) are distributed subject to one of the FLOSS licenses listed
32     below, and
33    
34     (ii) the object code or executable form of those sections are
35     accompanied by the complete corresponding machine-readable
36     source code for those sections on the same medium and under the
37     same FLOSS license as the corresponding object code or
38     executable forms of those sections, and
39    
40     c. any works which are aggregated with the Program or with a Derivative
41     Work on a volume of a storage or distribution medium in accordance
42     with the GPL, can reasonably be considered independent and separate
43     works in themselves which are not derivatives of either the Program,
44     a Derivative Work or a FLOSS Work.
45    
46     If the above conditions are not met, then the Program may only be copied,
47     modified, distributed or used under the terms and conditions of the GPL or
48     another valid licensing option from MySQL AB.

72    
73     Due to the many variants of some of the above licenses, we require that any
74     version follow the 2003 version of the Free Software Foundation's Free
75     Software Definition (http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html) or version
76     1.9 of the Open Source Definition by the Open Source Initiative

80    
81     a. Terms used, but not defined, herein shall have the meaning provided in
82     the GPL.
83    
84     b. Derivative Work means a derivative work under copyright law.
85    
86     3. Applicability
87    
88     This FLOSS Exception applies to all Programs that contain a notice placed by
89     MySQL AB saying that the Program may be distributed under the terms of this
90     FLOSS Exception. If you create or distribute a work which is a Derivative
91     Work of both the Program and any other work licensed under the GPL, then
92     this FLOSS Exception is not available for that work; thus, you must remove
93     the FLOSS Exception notice from that work and comply with the GPL in all
94     respects, including by retaining all GPL notices. You may choose to
95     redistribute a copy of the Program exclusively under the terms of the GPL by
96     removing the FLOSS Exception notice from that copy of the Program, provided
97     that the copy has never been modified by you or any third party.

101     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
102     Version 2, June 1991
103    
104     Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
105     51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
106     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
107     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
108    
109     Preamble
110    
111     The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
112     freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
113     License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
114     software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
115     General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
116     Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
117     using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
118     the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
119     your programs, too.
120    
121     When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
122     price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
123     have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
124     this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
125     if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
126     in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
127    
128     To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
129     anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
130     These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
131     distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
132    
133     For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
134     gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
135     you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
136     source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
137     rights.
138    
139     We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
140     (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
141     distribute and/or modify the software.
142    
143     Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
144     that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
145     software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
146     want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
147     that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
148     authors' reputations.
149    
150     Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
151     patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
152     program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
153     program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
154     patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
155    
156     The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
157     modification follow.
158    
159     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
160     TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
161    
162     0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
163     a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
164     under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
165     refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
166     means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
167     that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
168     either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
169     language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
170     the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
171    
172     Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
173     covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
174     running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
175     is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
176     Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
177     Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
178    
179     1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
180     source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
181     conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
182     copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
183     notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
184     and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
185     along with the Program.
186    
187     You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
188     you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
189    
190     2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
191     of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
192     distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
193     above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
194    
195     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
196     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
197    
198     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
199     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
200     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
201     parties under the terms of this License.
202    
203     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
204     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
205     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
206     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
207     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
208     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
209     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
210     License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
211     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
212     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
213    
214     These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
215     identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
216     and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
217     themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
218     sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
219     distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
220     on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
221     this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
222     entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
223    
224     Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
225     your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
226     exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
227     collective works based on the Program.
228    
229     In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
230     with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
231     a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
232     the scope of this License.
233    
234     3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
235     under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
236     Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
237    
238     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
239     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
240     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
241    
242     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
243     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
244     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
245     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
246     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
247     customarily used for software interchange; or,
248    
249     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
250     to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
251     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
252     received the program in object code or executable form with such
253     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
254    
255     The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
256     making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
257     code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
258     associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
259     control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
260     special exception, the source code distributed need not include
261     anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
262     form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
263     operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
264     itself accompanies the executable.
265    
266     If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
267     access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
268     access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
269     distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
270     compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
271    
272     4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
273     except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
274     otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
275     void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
276     However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
277     this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
278     parties remain in full compliance.
279    
280     5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
281     signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
282     distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
283     prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
284     modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
285     Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
286     all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
287     the Program or works based on it.
288    
289     6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
290     Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
291     original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
292     these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
293     restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
294     You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
295     this License.
296    
297     7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
298     infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
299     conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
300     otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
301     excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
302     distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
303     License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
304     may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
305     license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
306     all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
307     the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
308     refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
309    
310     If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
311     any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
312     apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
313     circumstances.
314    
315     It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
316     patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
317     such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
318     integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
319     implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
320     generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
321     through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
322     system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
323     to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
324     impose that choice.
325    
326     This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
327     be a consequence of the rest of this License.
328    
329     8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
330     certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
331     original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
332     may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
333     those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
334     countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
335     the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
336    
337     9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
338     of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
339     be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
340     address new problems or concerns.
341    
342     Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
343     specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
344     later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
345     either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
346     Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
347     this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
348     Foundation.
349    
350     10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
351     programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
352     to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
353     Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
354     make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
355     of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
356     of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
357    
358     NO WARRANTY
359    
360     11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
361     FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
362     OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
363     PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
364     OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
365     MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
366     TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
367     PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
368     REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
369    
370     12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
371     WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
372     REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
373     INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
374     OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
375     TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
376     YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
377     PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
378     POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
379    
380     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
381    
382     How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
383    
384     If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
385     possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
386     free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
387    
388     To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
389     to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
390     convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
391     the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
392    
393     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
394     Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
395    
396     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
397     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
398     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
399     (at your option) any later version.
400    
401     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
402     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
403     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
404     GNU General Public License for more details.
405    
406     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
407     along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
408     Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
409    
410    
411     Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
412    
413     If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
414     when it starts in an interactive mode:
415    
416     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
417     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
418     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
419     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
420    
421     The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
422     parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
423     be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
424     mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
425    
426     You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
427     school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
428     necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
429    
430     Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
431     `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
432    
433     <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
434     Ty Coon, President of Vice
435    
436     This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
437     proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
438     consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
439     library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
440     Public License instead of this License.
