Even though TOra is an open source GPL project it is also a commercial
project for the Windows platform. Both these projects are compiled from
the same codebase since that is so much easier to handle. Therefore any
patches that are to be accepted by me into the project must adhere to
one of the following three conditions.
1. The code given is public domain without any associated copyright.
2. The copyright of the code given is assigned to Underscore AB.
3. The code is licensed under LGPL and part of a separate library of
functionality (For instance a separate plugin could be part of this
kind of package).
Since most patches are a few lines of code which are part of files
which have an assigned copyright at the top of the files if nothing
else is specified the second alternative is assumed (Because the files
in question does have a copyright at the top of them and nobody
bothered changing them).
I have tried to be clear about this issue and actually ask people when
you have supplied patches the first time. If I've forgotten to ask
someone, or if someone has any issues with this please let me know.
Since TOra is now my main occupation this has become important to me
have really clear. If anyone who have supplied any patches don't accept
let me know and I'll have no choice but to reverse those patches and
reimplement the code myself. I've also updated the README file to
include most of the information above.
