1 alonbl 1.2 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
2     Version 3, 29 June 2007
3 vapier 1.1
4     Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
5     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
6     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
7    
8 alonbl 1.2 Preamble
9 vapier 1.1
10     The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
11     software and other kinds of works.
12    
13     The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
14     to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
15     the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
16     share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
17     software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
18     GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
19     any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
20     your programs, too.
21    
22     When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
23     price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
24     have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
25     them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
26     want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
27     free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
28    
29     To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
30     these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
31     certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
32     you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
33    
34     For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
35     gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
36     freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive
37     or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
38     know their rights.
39    
40     Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
41     (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
42     giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
43    
44     For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
45     that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users' and
46     authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
47     changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
48     authors of previous versions.
49    
50     Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
51     modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
52     can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
53     protecting users' freedom to change the software. The systematic
54     pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
55     use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we
56     have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
57     products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
58     stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
59     of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
60    
61     Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
62     States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
63     software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
64     avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
65     make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
66     patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
67    
68     The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
69     modification follow.
70    
71 alonbl 1.2 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
72 vapier 1.1
73     0. Definitions.
74    
75     "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
76    
77     "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
78     works, such as semiconductor masks.
79 alonbl 1.2
80 vapier 1.1 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
81     License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
82     "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
83    
84     To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
85     in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
86     exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
87     earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
88    
89     A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
90     on the Program.
91    
92     To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
93     permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
94     infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
95     computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
96     distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
97     public, and in some countries other activities as well.
98    
99     To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
100     parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
101     a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
102    
103     An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
104     to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
105     feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
106     tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
107     extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
108     work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
109     the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
110     menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
111    
112     1. Source Code.
113    
114     The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
115     for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
116     form of a work.
117    
118     A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
119     standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
120     interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
121     is widely used among developers working in that language.
122    
123     The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
124     than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
125     packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
126     Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
127     Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
128     implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
129     "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
130     (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
131     (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
132     produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
133    
134     The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
135     the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
136     work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
137     control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
138     System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
139     programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
140     which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
141     includes interface definition files associated with source files for
142     the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
143     linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
144     such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
145     subprograms and other parts of the work.
146    
147     The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
148     can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
149     Source.
150    
151     The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
152     same work.
153    
154     2. Basic Permissions.
155    
156     All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
157     copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
158     conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
159     permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
160     covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
161     content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
162     rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
163    
164     You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
165     convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
166     in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
167     of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
168     with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
169     the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
170     not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
171     for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
172     and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
173     your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
174    
175     Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
176     the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
177     makes it unnecessary.
178    
179     3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
180    
181     No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
182     measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
183     11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
184     similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
185     measures.
186    
187     When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
188     circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
189     is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
190     the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
191     modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
192     users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
193     technological measures.
194    
195     4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
196    
197     You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
198     receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
199     appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
200     keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
201     non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
202     keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
203     recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
204    
205     You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
206     and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
207    
208     5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
209    
210     You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
211     produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
212     terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
213    
214     a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
215     it, and giving a relevant date.
216    
217     b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
218     released under this License and any conditions added under section
219     7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
220     "keep intact all notices".
221    
222     c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
223     License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
224     License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
225     additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
226     regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
227     permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
228     invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
229    
230     d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
231     Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
232     interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
233     work need not make them do so.
234    
235     A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
236     works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
237     and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
238     in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
239     "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
240     used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
241     beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
242     in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
243     parts of the aggregate.
244    
245     6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
246    
247     You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
248     of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
249     machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
250     in one of these ways:
251    
252     a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
253     (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
254     Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
255     customarily used for software interchange.
256    
257     b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
258     (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
259     written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
260     long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
261     model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
262     copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
263     product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
264     medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
265     more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
266     conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
267     Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
268    
269     c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
270     written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
271     alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
272     only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
273     with subsection 6b.
274    
275     d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
276     place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
277     Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
278     further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
279     Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
280     copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
281     may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
282     that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
283     clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
284     Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
285     Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
286     available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
287    
288     e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
289     you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
290     Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
291     charge under subsection 6d.
292    
293     A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
294     from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
295     included in conveying the object code work.
296    
297     A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
298     tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
299     or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
300     into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
301     doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
302     product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
303     typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
304     of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
305     actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
306     is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
307     commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
308     the only significant mode of use of the product.
309    
310     "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
311     procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
312     and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
313     a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
314     suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
315     code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
316     modification has been made.
317    
318     If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
319     specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
320     part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
321     User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
322     fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
323     Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
324     by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
325     if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
326     modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
327     been installed in ROM).
328    
329     The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
330     requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
331     for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
332     the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
333     network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
334     adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
335     protocols for communication across the network.
336    
337     Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
338     in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
339     documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
340     source code form), and must require no special password or key for
341     unpacking, reading or copying.
342    
343     7. Additional Terms.
344    
345     "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
346     License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
347     Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
348     be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
349     that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
350     apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
351     under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
352     this License without regard to the additional permissions.
353    
354     When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
355     remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
356     it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
357     removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
358     additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
359     for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
360    
361     Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
362     add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
363     that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
364    
365     a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
366     terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
367    
368     b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
369     author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
370     Notices displayed by works containing it; or
371    
372     c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
373     requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
374     reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
375    
376     d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
377     authors of the material; or
378    
379     e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
380     trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
381    
382     f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
383     material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
384     it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
385     any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
386     those licensors and authors.
387    
388     All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
389     restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
390     received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
391     governed by this License along with a term that is a further
392     restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
393     a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
394     License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
395     of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
396     not survive such relicensing or conveying.
397    
398     If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
399     must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
400     additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
401     where to find the applicable terms.
402    
403     Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
404     form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
405     the above requirements apply either way.
406    
407     8. Termination.
408    
409     You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
410     provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
411     modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
412     this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
413     paragraph of section 11).
414    
415     However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
416     license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
417     provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
418     finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
419     holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
420     prior to 60 days after the cessation.
421    
422     Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
423     reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
424     violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
425     received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
426     copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
427     your receipt of the notice.
428    
429     Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
430     licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
431     this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
432     reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
433     material under section 10.
434    
435     9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
436    
437     You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
438     run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
439     occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
440     to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
441     nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
442     modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
443     not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
444     covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
445    
446     10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
447    
448     Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
449     receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
450     propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
451     for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
452    
453     An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
454     organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
455     organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
456     work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
457     transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
458     licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
459     give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
460     Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
461     the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
462    
463     You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
464     rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
465     not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
466     rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
467     (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
468     any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
469     sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
470    
471     11. Patents.
472    
473     A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
474     License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
475     work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
476    
477     A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
478     owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
479     hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
480     by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
481     but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
482     consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
483     purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
484     patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
485     this License.
486    
487     Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
488     patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
489     make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
490     propagate the contents of its contributor version.
491    
492     In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
493     agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
494     (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
495     sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
496     party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
497     patent against the party.
498    
499     If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
500     and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
501     to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
502     publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
503     then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
504     available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
505     patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
506     consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
507     license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
508     actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
509     covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
510     in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
511     country that you have reason to believe are valid.
512 alonbl 1.2
513 vapier 1.1 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
514     arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
515     covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
516     receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
517     or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
518     you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
519     work and works based on it.
520    
521     A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
522     the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
523     conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
524     specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
525     work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
526     in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
527     to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
528     the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
529     parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
530     patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
531     conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
532     for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
533     contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
534     or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
535    
536     Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
537     any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
538     otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
539    
540     12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
541    
542     If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
543     otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
544     excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
545     covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
546     License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
547     not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
548     to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
549     the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
550     License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
551    
552     13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
553    
554     Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
555     permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
556     under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
557     combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
558     License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
559     but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
560     section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
561     combination as such.
562    
563     14. Revised Versions of this License.
564    
565     The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
566     the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
567     be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
568     address new problems or concerns.
569    
570     Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
571     Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
572     Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
573     option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
574     version or of any later version published by the Free Software
575     Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
576     GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
577     by the Free Software Foundation.
578    
579     If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
580     versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
581     public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
582     to choose that version for the Program.
583    
584     Later license versions may give you additional or different
585     permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
586     author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
587     later version.
588    
589     15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
590    
591     THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
592     APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
593     HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
594     OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
595     THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
596     PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
597     IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
598     ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
599    
600     16. Limitation of Liability.
601    
602     IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
603     WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
604     THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
605     GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
606     USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
607     DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
608     PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
609     EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
610     SUCH DAMAGES.
611    
612     17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
613    
614     If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
615     above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
616     reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
617     an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
618     Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
619     copy of the Program in return for a fee.

623 alonbl 1.2 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
624 vapier 1.1
625     If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
626     possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
627     free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
628    
629     To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
630     to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
631     state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
632     the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
633    
634     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
635     Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
636    
637     This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
638     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
639     the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
640     (at your option) any later version.
641    
642     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
643     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
644     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
645     GNU General Public License for more details.
646    
647     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
648     along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
649    
650     Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
651    
652     If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
653     notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
654    
655     <program> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
656     This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
657     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
658     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
659    
660     The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
661     parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program's commands
662     might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
663    
664     You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
665     if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
666     For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
667     <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
668    
669     The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
670     into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
671     may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
672     the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
673     Public License instead of this License. But first, please read
674     <http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html>.
