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

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.

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.
