    What is the license for Eterm (0.8.10 and 0.9)?

    The homepage on SourceForge says it is BSD + MIT.
    Both tarballs on ftp://ftp.eterm.org/pub/eterm contain
    the COPYING file for GPL, but the spec.in file says
    BSD for 0.9 and GPL for 0.8.10. On Freshmeat, they say GPL.

    So, what is it, really?

      Both.  Most of Eterm uses the BSD license with the advertising clause.  A
      few files still contain old xvt code which is under John Bovey's original
      freeware license.  The Etbg utility was written by someone else and is GPL.

      Eventually it will all be BSD. :-)
