1 License details for VIM Editor:
3 *uganda.txt* For Vim version 7.2. Last change: 2008 Jun 21
6 VIM REFERENCE MANUAL by Bram Moolenaar
9 *uganda* *Uganda* *copying* *copyright* *license*
11 *iccf* *ICCF*
12 Vim is Charityware. You can use and copy it as much as you like, but you are
13 encouraged to make a donation for needy children in Uganda. Please see |kcc|
14 below or visit the ICCF web site, available at these URLs:
16 http://iccf-holland.org/
17 http://www.vim.org/iccf/
18 http://www.iccf.nl/
20 You can also sponsor the development of Vim. Vim sponsors can vote for
21 features. See |sponsor|. The money goes to Uganda anyway.
23 The Open Publication License applies to the Vim documentation, see
24 |manual-copyright|.
26 === begin of license ===
30 I) There are no restrictions on distributing unmodified copies of Vim except
31 that they must include this license text. You can also distribute
32 unmodified parts of Vim, likewise unrestricted except that they must
33 include this license text. You are also allowed to include executables
34 that you made from the unmodified Vim sources, plus your own usage
35 examples and Vim scripts.
37 II) It is allowed to distribute a modified (or extended) version of Vim,
38 including executables and/or source code, when the following four
39 conditions are met:
40 1) This license text must be included unmodified.
41 2) The modified Vim must be distributed in one of the following five ways:
42 a) If you make changes to Vim yourself, you must clearly describe in
43 the distribution how to contact you. When the maintainer asks you
44 (in any way) for a copy of the modified Vim you distributed, you
45 must make your changes, including source code, available to the
46 maintainer without fee. The maintainer reserves the right to
47 include your changes in the official version of Vim. What the
48 maintainer will do with your changes and under what license they
49 will be distributed is negotiable. If there has been no negotiation
50 then this license, or a later version, also applies to your changes.
51 The current maintainer is Bram Moolenaar <Bram@vim.org>. If this
52 changes it will be announced in appropriate places (most likely
53 vim.sf.net, www.vim.org and/or comp.editors). When it is completely
54 impossible to contact the maintainer, the obligation to send him
55 your changes ceases. Once the maintainer has confirmed that he has
56 received your changes they will not have to be sent again.
57 b) If you have received a modified Vim that was distributed as
58 mentioned under a) you are allowed to further distribute it
59 unmodified, as mentioned at I). If you make additional changes the
60 text under a) applies to those changes.
61 c) Provide all the changes, including source code, with every copy of
62 the modified Vim you distribute. This may be done in the form of a
63 context diff. You can choose what license to use for new code you
64 add. The changes and their license must not restrict others from
65 making their own changes to the official version of Vim.
66 d) When you have a modified Vim which includes changes as mentioned
67 under c), you can distribute it without the source code for the
68 changes if the following three conditions are met:
69 - The license that applies to the changes permits you to distribute
70 the changes to the Vim maintainer without fee or restriction, and
71 permits the Vim maintainer to include the changes in the official
72 version of Vim without fee or restriction.
73 - You keep the changes for at least three years after last
74 distributing the corresponding modified Vim. When the maintainer
75 or someone who you distributed the modified Vim to asks you (in
76 any way) for the changes within this period, you must make them
77 available to him.
78 - You clearly describe in the distribution how to contact you. This
79 contact information must remain valid for at least three years
80 after last distributing the corresponding modified Vim, or as long
81 as possible.
82 e) When the GNU General Public License (GPL) applies to the changes,
83 you can distribute the modified Vim under the GNU GPL version 2 or
84 any later version.
85 3) A message must be added, at least in the output of the ":version"
86 command and in the intro screen, such that the user of the modified Vim
87 is able to see that it was modified. When distributing as mentioned
88 under 2)e) adding the message is only required for as far as this does
89 not conflict with the license used for the changes.
90 4) The contact information as required under 2)a) and 2)d) must not be
91 removed or changed, except that the person himself can make
92 corrections.
94 III) If you distribute a modified version of Vim, you are encouraged to use
95 the Vim license for your changes and make them available to the
96 maintainer, including the source code. The preferred way to do this is
97 by e-mail or by uploading the files to a server and e-mailing the URL.
98 If the number of changes is small (e.g., a modified Makefile) e-mailing a
99 context diff will do. The e-mail address to be used is
100 <maintainer@vim.org>
102 IV) It is not allowed to remove this license from the distribution of the Vim
103 sources, parts of it or from a modified version. You may use this
104 license for previous Vim releases instead of the license that they came
105 with, at your option.
107 === end of license ===
109 Note:
111 - If you are happy with Vim, please express that by reading the rest of this
112 file and consider helping needy children in Uganda.
114 - If you want to support further Vim development consider becoming a
115 |sponsor|. The money goes to Uganda anyway.
117 - According to Richard Stallman the Vim license is GNU GPL compatible.
118 A few minor changes have been made since he checked it, but that should not
119 make a difference.
121 - If you link Vim with a library that goes under the GNU GPL, this limits
122 further distribution to the GNU GPL. Also when you didn't actually change
123 anything in Vim.
125 - Once a change is included that goes under the GNU GPL, this forces all
126 further changes to also be made under the GNU GPL or a compatible license.
128 - If you distribute a modified version of Vim, you can include your name and
129 contact information with the "--with-modified-by" configure argument or the
130 MODIFIED_BY define.
132 ==============================================================================
133 Kibaale Children's Centre *kcc* *Kibaale* *charity*
135 Kibaale Children's Centre (KCC) is located in Kibaale, a small town in the
136 south of Uganda, near Tanzania, in East Africa. The area is known as Rakai
137 District. The population is mostly farmers. Although people are poor, there
138 is enough food. But this district is suffering from AIDS more than any other
139 part of the world. Some say that it started there. Estimations are that 10
140 to 30% of the Ugandans are infected with HIV. Because parents die, there are
141 many orphans. In this district about 60,000 children have lost one or both
142 parents, out of a population of 350,000. And this is still continuing.
144 The children need a lot of help. The KCC is working hard to provide the needy
145 with food, medical care and education. Food and medical care to keep them
146 healthy now, and education so that they can take care of themselves in the
147 future. KCC works on a Christian base, but help is given to children of any
148 religion.
150 The key to solving the problems in this area is education. This has been
151 neglected in the past years with president Idi Amin and the following civil
152 wars. Now that the government is stable again, the children and parents have
153 to learn how to take care of themselves and how to avoid infections. There is
154 also help for people who are ill and hungry, but the primary goal is to
155 prevent people from getting ill and to teach them how to grow healthy food.
157 Most of the orphans are living in an extended family. An uncle or older
158 sister is taking care of them. Because these families are big and the income
159 (if any) is low, a child is lucky if it gets healthy food. Clothes, medical
160 care and schooling is beyond its reach. To help these needy children, a
161 sponsorship program was put into place. A child can be financially adopted.
162 For a few dollars a month KCC sees to it that the child gets indispensable
163 items, is healthy, goes to school and KCC takes care of anything else that
164 needs to be done for the child and the family that supports it.
166 Besides helping the child directly, the environment where the child grows up
167 needs to be improved. KCC helps schools to improve their teaching methods.
168 There is a demonstration school at the centre and teacher trainings are given.
169 Health workers are being trained, hygiene education is carried out and
170 households are stimulated to build a proper latrine. I helped setting up a
171 production site for cement slabs. These are used to build a good latrine.
172 They are sold below cost price.
174 There is a small clinic at the project, which provides children and their
175 family with medical help. When needed, transport to a hospital is offered.
176 Immunization programs are carried out and help is provided when an epidemic is
177 breaking out (measles and cholera have been a problem).
178 *donate*
179 Summer 1994 to summer 1995 I spent a whole year at the centre, working as a
180 volunteer. I have helped to expand the centre and worked in the area of water
181 and sanitation. I learned that the help that the KCC provides really helps.
182 When I came back to Holland, I wanted to continue supporting KCC. To do this
183 I'm raising funds and organizing the sponsorship program. Please consider one
184 of these possibilities:
186 1. Sponsor a child in primary school: 17 euro a month (or more).
187 2. Sponsor a child in secondary school: 25 euro a month (or more).
188 3. Sponsor the clinic: Any amount a month or quarter
189 4. A one-time donation
191 Compared with other organizations that do child sponsorship the amounts are
192 very low. This is because the money goes directly to the centre. Less than
193 5% is used for administration. This is possible because this is a small
194 organization that works with volunteers. If you would like to sponsor a
195 child, you should have the intention to do this for at least one year.
197 How do you know that the money will be spent right? First of all you have my
198 personal guarantee as the author of Vim. I trust the people that are working
199 at the centre, I know them personally. Further more, the centre is
200 co-sponsored and inspected by World Vision, Save the Children Fund and
201 International Child Care Fund. The centre is visited about once a year to
202 check the progress (at our own cost). I have visited the centre myself in
203 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001 and 2003. The visit reports are on the ICCF web site.
205 If you have any further questions, send me e-mail: <Bram@vim.org>.
