The National Archives of Australia's preservation software is free software (free as in freedom, not just as in price) and makes use of various other free software projects itself. DPR is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3.0 or later (see COPYING.txt). Other third party applications are under their own free software licenses.
Installation and distribution
You are free to redistribute DPSP and to install it on as many computer systems as you please.
You are also free to download the complete source code and modify it to suit your own requirements. See our website at http://dpsp.sourceforge.net for details.
Please read the DPSP Quick Start Guide available from this website for an overview on how to use DPSP. Each individual DPSP product (such as Xena and DPR) has its own detailed User Manual, available from the project's Sourceforge project page.
We hope that DPSP will be useful for you. Please contact us if you require any assistance, find bugs, or have any feature requests.
